Syria Stationery Drive [REPORT]

Date / Duration : 22 October 2013 to 25 February 2014

Our aim was to give many Syrian children a chance to learn albeit in difficult situations. COH Graphic designer, who also happens to be one of the directors of COH, Rashaad Sallie, designed an eye catching logo and thus began the work of facilitating drop off points for the stationery. More than 60 drop offs were facilitated and brand new stationery began pouring in. Various schools participated in this initiative and generous donations were made by companies like Statesman Stationers, Fine Cash and Carry Newcastle and Favourite Stationers Newcastle. COH was the first organisation in South Africa to do a stationery run for Syria and it was a tremendous success.
