Charity is a pillar of Islam and is supported by numerous Quranic verses and prophetic sayings
As a Physicians Across Continents donor, you fuel the delivery of medical aid and all our services to the people who need it most, no matter where they are, who they are, their religion or whether they have hit the headlines.
Your money pays for hundreds of thousands of consultations, operations, treatments and preventative programmes every year. Here at Physicians Across Continents, your hard-earned money is our trust and we work to spend your money in the most efficient way and to help those in greatest need and were we can, the highest impact.
At Physicians Across Continents we deliver care directly rather than through local partner organisations. We set up and run medical services, train staff and respond to fast-moving emergencies and we are embedded within the communities we serve. This means the money you have entrust to Physicians Across Continents is spent by Physicians Across Continents to where you want it to be spent.
We do not take from one pool of money and spend it on another project, no matter how urgent it may seem. Unless you give us permission through your donations and you have specified to us to spend your donations where it is most needed or our general fund.
There are essential costs for any organisation and a small percentage of the money we raise – just TBC – is used for office running costs in the UK.
Each aspect of the way we operate from our office is designed to keep these essential costs low. We rent inexpensive office space, we buy only the lowest fares for travel and stay in budget hotels when travelling abroad.
