SEGUNDA MANA

What is Segunda Mana?

Literally, the term means "secondhand". But in this case, Segunda Mana,also known as Caritas in Kind, is a fund-raising project that collects items you don't need—used or unused—which have value and may be sold. It was launched on October 27,2007 by Caritas Manila. Proceeds from the sale of donated items will fund Caritas Manila's programs for the poor.

Why donate?

Segunda Mana is inspired by the spirituality of stewardship. As a way of life, stewardship challenges all of us to serve others using the gifts we have received. Since everything we have comes from God, our attitude must not only consist of gratitude but also of a deep sense of especially for those who are most in need.

What can you donate?

Giving usually means sharing what is precious to us. But with Segunda Mana, you can help by giving what you don't need anymore, because what is no longer useful to you may still be valuable to others. Segunda Mana allows you to free up space in the workplace or home while helping those most in need at the same time.

Segunda Mana accepts the following items:

- OLD ITEMS that can still be used
- USED ITEMS that still have value
- NEW ITEMS
- OLD STOCKS and NON-MOVING INVENTORIES
