Emergency appeal

All donations for the Red Cross' emergency fundraising will be used to meet the needs of the victims of the conflict in Ukraine and those living with increased food shortages as a result of the conflict, e.g. residents of East Africa. Fundraising money is used to provide emergency services such as ensuring access to food, water, health care, shelter and providing psychological support. The collection also covers the Red Cross' relief work for refugees in Iceland.

Support victims

The conflict in Ukraine has caused one of the greatest humanitarian problems of recent times. The conflict has, for example, increased food insecurity in East Africa, which was facing a severe food shortage before the conflict. Our monthly donors support all humanitarian and reconstruction work of the Red Cross.

Red Cross all over Iceland

The Icelandic Red Cross has branches all over Iceland that work according to our strategy in disaster services, with migrants, in health projects, clothing projects and more.
