How your donation helps in Switzerland
When it comes to delivering assistance, we work primarily with our two mandated partner NGOs: Caritas Switzerland and the Swiss Red Cross. In addition, six other organisations, namely the Salvation Army, Pro Infirmis, Pro Senectute’s cantonal and intercantonal organisations, the Swiss workers’ relief organisation SAH/OSEO, the Swiss winter aid organisation Secours d’hiver, and DAO, the umbrella organisation for women’s shelters in Switzerland, were able to broaden their support for people in need. And lastly, another 28 organisations are distributing food aid or financial support.
Another call for projects was launched today to support those who find themselves without an income because of the pandemic. These are people who occasionally work informally or who, because of their informal status, do not have access to social insurance or public assistance, and who were already living in precarious conditions before the crisis.
