Ten Countries Apply for 2024 Donate Your Fencing Gear! Programme

LAUSANNE, Switz., Feb. 29, 2024 – Ten countries have applied to be 2024 recipients of the FIE’s Donate Your Fencing Gear! (DYFG) programme. DYFG takes good-quality equipment donations from world athletes, coaches and manufacturers and distributes them to disadvantaged and underprivileged athletes throughout the world. Each year, countries send proposals describing why they should be deemed beneficiaries of the programme.

DYFG gives a fair and equal opportunity for all FIE member federations to seek donations. Donated equipment is scrutinized by members of the FIE SEMI Commission to ensure everything is safe and in proper working condition.

The countries who applied this year include Antigua and Barbuda, Benin, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Montenegro, Pakistan and Togo.

Beneficiary countries will be announced later this year.
