The Finnish Red Cross is the most significant Finnish civic organisation providing humanitarian aid. Over the last few years they have also become one of the most important organisations providing development aid. The aid coming from Finland consists of financial support as well as material and personnel aid directed at operations and programmes. Their development cooperation aid is focused specifically on two areas: disaster relief work and health work. The rapid deployment units of the Finnish Red Cross provide expertise in humanitarian aid: field hospitals and clinics as well as delegates, which can be sent to the disaster area with only a few hours notice. All this help is aided by you.
