MAGNA responds to global humanitarian crises with effective use of resources.
At its inception, MAGNA voluntarily pledged to use at least 80% of the funds raised for project operations in the field, and only 20% for fundraising and administration. Over the long term MAGNA has kept its commitment, in 2019 we spending a full 95% of our revenue on health projects.
As a MAGNA donor, you’re contributing to health care for children and their family members who need it urgently. Thanks to your contributions, we’re providing regular medical examinations, operations, long-term treatment, and vaccination.
How do we do it?
MAGNA implements its assistance directly, building its own teams and not using other entities. MAGNA teams provide health care, organize training for medical staff in communities, and respond both to immediate emergency needs and long-term humanitarian crises. MAGNA will use your money directly for its projects.
We are a non-profit medical humanitarian organization with an international reach. Your help allows us to provide health care whenever and wherever necessary.
We make sure to minimize the costs of the organization’s administration and management, so the highest possible percentage of donations goes to saving lives. Therefore, in 2019 a full 95% of what you donated went directly to our health programs.
