On 23 May, Swiss Solidarity and SRG held a national fundraising day in support of the Rohingya in Bangladesh, with the support of private radio stations. By midnight we had received donation pledges of CHF 3,025,262.
Three weeks after the fundraising day we have received double the amount of donations pledged on the day.
We did not expect the amount of donations to be doubled. The people in Switzerland have once again outdone themselves in expressing their solidarity and they will presumably continue to do so in the coming weeks.
Tony Burgener, Swiss Solidarity Director
We would like to thank all our donors for this fantastic result, as well as all those who helped in some way or other on the fundraising day itself: Swiss president Alain Berset, volunteers, the staff of SRF, RTS, RTR, RSI, Swisscom and Pro Glückskette radio station, comedians, influencers and other celebrities.
