Making a donation
People are incredibly generous responding to our appeals when disaster strikes but like a Chess Grand Master, we need to be thinking several moves ahead and amongst other things:
- Raising funds for future disasters
- Replenishing and positioning stocks
so that we can respond immediately to the needs of survivors, possibly even ahead of an appeal. The donations received for a particular appeal will continue to be spent on that appeal.
In general, we prefer not to accept caveats on donations that are specific about the aid to be purchased but if a donor wishes to solely fund a unique project with appropriate funding, then we are happy to discuss this.
By being flexible, innovative but not restricted and with your humanity and generosity we can continue to check disasters as they occur and give the affected population a ‘hand up, not a handout’.
