We spend 84% of the money we raise on our medical programmes, just two percent is spent on administrative and staff costs. The rest is reinvested in fundraising.
More than 90% of the money we raise comes from individuals making small, private donations that they trust us to spend where the need is greatest - this financial independence allows us to act fast in an emergency. The rest of our money comes from international organisations and institutions, and from governments.
When we work in places where there are many parties to a conflict, we rely solely on private donations to maintain our independence and neutrality, and ensure we can provide assistance to those that need it the most, free of a political agenda.
We take accountability to our donors very seriously, and are transparent about how we spend the money they trust to us. Each year, we publish our annual accounts, detailing the money we have spent on all of our medical programmes.
