Please choose the most suitable donation cause from the following options:

Disaster Relief Fund

Funds donated to the Disaster Relief Fund will enable the Finnish Red Cross to respond to aid needs quickly and efficiently in Finland and abroad. With funds from the general Disaster Relief Fund, we support long-term development cooperation and the victims of disasters, conflicts or epidemics throughout the world. The funds of the Disaster Relief Fund are also used in Finland to help families that have run into difficult situations due to a sudden accident, for example. The funds are also used to support activities that promote wellbeing.

Stop hunger

East Africa and Yemen are facing one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. Millions of people are fighting starvation every day.

The crisis is fueled by a long-term drought or a conflict. This leads to poor harvests, dead cattle, fewer jobs and people running out of food and water. Many have already died and now immediate, large-scale action needs to be taken to prevent an even bigger disaster.

Red Cross is active in all countries that are threatened by famine. We also work in areas where other international organizations do not have access. We provide people with food, water and healthcare. Moreover, we educate locals and work with communities to prepare them for future crises.

Through the Disaster Relief Fund, you can direct your donation to certain area, country, disaster, conflict or a cause, for example: Syria, Irak, HIV work, emergency aid in Finland, preparedness operations or to the Disaster Relief Fund in general.

Causes in Finland

In Finland, the activities of the Finnish Red Cross include training volunteers for friend visitor and first aid activities, maintaining preparedness for disasters and maintaining the Youth Emergency Shelters amongst other things.

The organisation also helps refugees by opening emergency reception centres or emergency accommodation for asylum seekers as required. Red Cross volunteers are important support persons in the reception of asylum seekers and in supporting their integration in the country.

General donations for activities in Finland are directed to operations that require funding the most at a given time.
