There are two ways in which you can provide support:
Become a Tulipe volunteer:
If you would like to get involved in a humanitarian project and would like to help Tulipe, you can participate in Tulipe’s “tin trunk” days: for more information on volunteering for Tulipe
Make a donation
Tulipe collects donations from pharmaceutical companies to provide emergency assistance to populations un distress during acute health crises, natural disasters or conflicts.
The association is funded by pharmaceutical companies and does not usually accept donations of money from individuals. Calls for financial donations, limited to employees of member companies, can nevertheless be organised from time to time in the context of large-scale humanitarian operations.
However, if you would like to make a gift of your time, you can participate in our volunteer days.

Collecting unused medicines for humanitarian use is prohibited in France as of 1 January 2009 (Law N°2008-337, published in the Journal Officiel of 16/4/2008). Tulipe complies with the Guidelines for Drug Donations(in French) and works only with new medicines, the source and quality of which is guaranteed by an uninterrupted pharmaceutical chain.
Any unused medicines you may have at home should be taken to a dispensary. They will be collected, incinerated and recycled under the Cyclamed (in French) system, which brings together the entire pharmaceutical sector: pharmaceutical companies, wholesalers, and dispensaries.
