We could not have merged our four facilities in Zurich into one in December 2017, had it not been for the generous contributions of organisations and individuals. They deserve a huge thank you. The detailed amounts can be found in the notes to the financial statements.

Would you like to make a contribution?

We are grateful for every donation we receive.
