More than seven million Swiss francs were raised on the occasion of our National Day of Solidarity on 23 November. Since then, solidarity with the people affected has continued and shown itself in the form of further donations. By Wednesday evening, Swiss Solidarity had received 12,274,649 Swiss francs in donations. The donations will enable us to further expand the urgently needed emergency aid through our Swiss partner organizations on the ground. Swiss Solidarity is currently funding eight projects of its Swiss partner organizations on the ground, including Adra, Caritas Switzerland, Heks, Helvetas, Medair, Save the Children Switzerland, the Terre des hommes Foundation and Vétérinaires Sans Frontières. They provide urgently needed emergency aid in the form of cash assistance to rebuild destroyed livelihoods, treat malnutrition in children and pregnant or lactating women, and provide access to water.
