The Finnish Red Cross is the most significant Finnish civic organisation providing humanitarian aid. Over the last few years we have also become one of the most important organisations providing development aid.

The aid coming from Finland consists of financial support as well as material and personnel aid directed at operations and programmes. Our development cooperation aid is focused specifically on two areas: disaster relief work and health work. The rapid deployment units of the Finnish Red Cross provide expertise in humanitarian aid: field hospitals and clinics as well as delegates, which can be sent to the disaster area with only a few hours notice. All this help is aided by you.

The Finnish Red Cross sends aid to dozens of countries annually. The Red Cross and the Red Crescent have a total of 187 national organisations around the world. These organisations have almost one hundred million members and volunteers.
