Your donation to Finnish Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund helps victims of accidents, conflicts and natural disasters both in FInland and around the world.

In Finland, the aid provided is mostly psychological support 

Aid is also given to many families who have, for example, suddenly lost their home in a fire. The Voluntary Rescue Service operations are also supported by the Disaster Relief Fund. The Voluntary Rescue Service assists, for example, in searching for people who are missing.

Disaster Relief Fund

When faced with an emergency, aid supplies, such as tents, blankets, clean drinking water or an entire field hospital to the disaster area are delivered. After providing emergency aid, the Red Cross and Red Crescent will help in the rebuilding and teach how to proceed in the event of an accident.

The Disaster Relief Fund also enables us to support development cooperation programmes and continuously fight disease and hunger together with local volunteers.

Aid with your help

The Red Cross delivers aid efficiently to where it is needed most. The Disaster Relief Fund’s fundraising costs amount to no more than 15% a year. Fundraising costs include fundraising supplies, such as collecting boxes and vests, fundraising safety and communications. The rules and tight monitoring of the Disaster Relief Fund control the use of the donated funds.

Would you like to become a monthly donor?

As a monthly donor, you ensure the continuation of aid work. Thanks to regular donations, aid supplies and aid workers are ready as soon as something happens in Finland or abroad.
With your help, volunteers can offer hope and safety for those in need every day if the year – everywhere in the world.
