Once an appeal is over, our partner relief organizations
submit their project proposals to us. We consider very carefully which projects we fund with your donations, in order to ensure that the people in need get the best possible help.
First of all, our project department assesses whether the projects meet our guidelines. In a second step, the Project Committee for International Aid
assesses the projects closely to decide whether we will fund them. The Committee is made up of experts from many fields (medicine, child protection, construction, water and hygiene, business). It makes a recommendation about which projects to fund and its decision-making body then makes the final decision.
If we decide to fund a project, we cover a maximum of 80 per cent of the total project costs, and the relief organizations may claim 10 per cent maximum in administrative costs.
