British Red Cross
“Through annual grant aid, the British Red Cross received grants totaling just over £153,000 this year in support of three projects in Sierra Leone, Uganda and Afghanistan. Opportunities for securing funding for our work in Afghanistan, in particular, are limited, making the Commission’s grant vital in enabling us to carry out community based health work in this desperately poor country, and preventing avoidable deaths.
“Funding awarded by the Commission this year is enabling us to provide health and livelihoods support to a targeted 58,000 beneficiaries, demonstrating value for money for the people of Jersey and their investment in development and achieving life-saving changes for people in need.”
