Above all, our founders were radio presenters with generous hearts. Today we are the largest private humanitarian aid donor in Switzerland. For over 30 years we have been an autonomous foundation and the humanitarian arm of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, SRG SSR.
The original idea of expressing solidarity with the victims of disasters – whether in Switzerland or abroad – is still what motivates us today.
Along with our partner the SRG, over the last 70 years we have launched about 190 appeals on radio and TV for the victims of natural disasters and conflicts. Each time, especially on national fundraising days, the appeals spark an amazing wave of solidarity throughout Switzerland.
Swiss solidarity, for which we stand, is only possible thanks to the generous support of the Swiss public and our strong partnerships with the SRG, Swisscom, private radio stations, the media and, of course, our operational partners, the NGOs.
