General Funds & Transportation Funds

It is only possible for us to send the volume of aid we send to people in need of humanitarian aid because people like you help us to raise the money to send it. If everyone who donates a bag of clothes also puts in £6 towards the costs of getting it to the people in need then it should be possible to cover these costs.

Sometimes we are offered large volumes of aid from other organisations and businesses and need to raise the money to cover the costs of sending these lorries and containers too. It costs between £7,000-£8,500 to send and distribute an entire container filled with aid as we also have to cover these distribution costs at the other end. Often, this will enable some employment for some of the people in need in the local areas too. In places where there are such high poverty levels we feel that this is an important aspect of our work too.
We will also use any leftover money from this fund to provide other types of humanitarian aid locally to distribute to the neediest people ie food, hygiene products, winter fuel, medical etc.

Please watch the short video to see some of our aid being distributed in Aleppo, Syria in February 2016.
