The administration ensures that the funds are used professionally and correctly. The remaining amount (about 90%) goes to projects for people in need.

We would be happy to keep you up to date on our work by sending you our project reports regularly.

We work exclusively on a voluntary basis.

About 10% of donations are used for information work, campaign and operating costs (e.g. office/administration costs) and quality assurance (e.g. independent auditing of aid projects).
