This is in compliance with the requirements outlined by the Registrar of Societies. This is intended to protect the public by preventing fundraising for specific appeals to continue indefinitely.
However, certain disasters may require additional funding, and as such we may be able to apply for extension of specific appeals, subject to approval from the Registrar of Societies. If you are unsure, do get in touch with us to check which appeals are still active.
We discourage this. We are a needs-based organization, and as such we strive to provide assistance to our beneficiaries purely on a needs basis.
By earmarking your funds for specific expenditure only, we are unable to utilise your funds elsewhere, where it may be needed more.

We are committed to being accountable to our donors on how the funds should be channeled, and we encourage you to keep your donations non-earmarked.
