Product donations that are temporarily out of stock can be seen in our catalogue, but sadly, you will not be able to place a request for these. Now, we only rely on our donor partners' generosity for these software donations. Hence, we cannot guarantee when additional stock will be provided, or if it will be made available again. So, we ask of you to just check regularly to know when it will be made available again.
On the other hand, if a particular product cannot be seen in our catalogue, then this product is not available through our donation program.
