During the Hunger Day campaign donations are collected for the Finnish Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, so that we can help quickly and effectively where the need is greatest.

Right now, aid is urgently needed in areas such as East Africa, which is facing its worst food crisis in decades. In addition to this, help is needed in Pakistan.   

Here in Finland, the donations raised on Hunger Day can be used to provide immediate help to people who have lost their homes in a fire, for example.

By donating €500 or more, your company can access the special communication materials.

PLS NOTE If you wish to target your aid to Ukraine specifically, select Ukraine crisis as your donation target.

The Finnish Red Cross provides help in accidents, alleviates loneliness, takes care of the vulnerable and supports immigrants with integration activities.

We maintain our crisis preparedness by training and supporting volunteers all over Finland.

General donations to activities in Finland are targeted to wherever funds are needed the most. You can also support specially youth shelters or friendship activities.

Youth Shelters

We offer help for young people and their families in all kinds of difficult situations locally in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Turku and Tampere, and throughout Finland online by appointment.

Youth Shelters help around the clock, every day of the year, and can offer a young person a safe place to spend the night if necessary. A young person or their family can come to the shelter without a referral or appointment. The services are free of charge.

Friend activities

Loneliness is destructive to human well-being. Up to one in five Finns feels lonely. Loneliness can feel like invisibility and emptiness or manifest as physical pain.

Each of us needs the company of another person, and even a single positive relationship can stop the cycle of loneliness.

The Red Cross alleviates loneliness by providing friends to those who are looking for the company of another person. The friends get together and spend time in a manner that suits them, such as having coffee or exercising outside.

Donations made to friend activities are used e.g. for friend activity coordination and volunteer training.

Donations to the Finnish Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund help victims of natural disasters and conflicts around the world and people facing sudden accidents in Finland.

Thanks to donations, aid can be provided quickly and efficiently to dozens of countries each year.

In an emergency, we can supply crisis areas with aid workers and aid equipment, such as tents, blankets, clean drinking water or an entire field hospital.

After providing emergency aid, we can help with the rebuilding and teach locals how to act in a disaster situation. The Disaster Relief Fund also helps us support development cooperation programmes and continuously fight illness and hunger together with local volunteers.
