report Finn Church Aid

Donors’ and international investors’ trust in FCA remained strong in 2017.

Finn Church Aid (FCA) spent 38.6 million euros on aid work last year, an increase of 7.5 million from the previous year. The growth in operations was enabled by the increase in international funding and private donations.
