Using donations made in 2019 and in previous years, last year we were able to support 234 projects run by our partner NGOs in Switzerland, Bangladesh, Mozambique and many other countries.

Thanks to your generous donations, last year we were able to help and give hope to around six million people, providing emergency aid, social assistance, and supporting projects in a range of fields, from child welfare to reconstruction and economic regeneration.

CHF 34,693,433

In 2019 you donated CHF 20 million for the victims of the war in Yemen and of Hurricane Idai in Mozambique, for women in forgotten crises and children in Switzerland who are the victims of domestic violence.

The whole team and I would like to thank you personally for the donations you have made. As the new director, I hope that we can continue to count on your support over the coming year, because your donation makes a difference!
Roland Thomann, Director, Swiss Solidarity.

CHF 4,980,635

Over 17 per cent of all donations received went towards projects in Switzerland. These projects focus on helping a range of different people: children who are victims of domestic violence, young people wanting to reintegrate into society and the world of work, the victims of the Bondo landslide and others who have suffered as the result of severe weather events in Switzerland.

Many thanks for your support!
