We are grateful for any and all contributions since our work is financed by voluntary donations. Your help enables us to relieve the suffering of people around the world hard hit by conflict.

If you wish, you can specify the country or the geographical area in which you wish us to spend your donation, or you can choose an activity on which we should spend it. However, the ICRC's neutral, independent and impartial status means we cannot accept any donations earmarked for a particular type of school, a village, a project, a group of persons or an area within the borders of a country.

Please see Where does your money go? for more details about accountability and earmarking of funds.
