Frequently asked questions


When you buy a gift that save lives in our online shop, you receive a gift card where you can add a personal greeting. We will send your gift card by email as a PDF file that you can print or send electronically. It is up to you whether you want to send the gift card to the recipient by email or give them a physical card.


Our gifts that save lives are genuine examples of NRC's work. We always use the money we collect where it is most needed, regardless of location or politics.

We provide life-saving help such as clean water, food, shelter, warm blankets and clothes. We also operate large refugee camps, set up sanitary systems to prevent epidemics and provide schooling to displaced children. We help young people to learn a craft so that they can get a job and manage on their own. And we provide free legal assistance and information to displaced people. Our aim is not only to help people to survive but also to provide support so they can build a new future.

In 2020, we provided assistance to almost 12 million displaced people worldwide.

We control all the aid ourselves and give it directly to those who need it most. More than 90 percent of NRC's income is channeled to our work with people forced to flee. Your contribution will make a difference!
