Emergency Relief Fund

(charity number 211231)

The Emergency Relief Fund was initially registered as a Charity in 1963, having emerged from work done in post conflict Europe. The Fund is used to help those people in immediate need of relief due to disasters throughout the world and is primarily relief only, for example, for food, shelter and immediate medical aid.

Individual members, Clubs, Regions, National Associations, Networks and Countries can recommend that funds are provided for particular situations. The Trustees then consider the appropriateness of the recommendation and, where applicable, the amount of the grant.

Any grants are always carefully placed in the areas of great need and where they can be administered through a tried and tested partner or by Soroptimists themselves.

The Emergency Relief Fund relies on Clubs and Members to maintain a sufficient level of funds. Please bear the Emergency Relief Fund in mind when considering donations for the future.
