Where does your money go?

After media outlets published heartbreaking photographs in September 2015 of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi washed ashore on a Turkish beach, MOAS has been among many nongovernmental organizations flooded by a tidal wave of support.

Donations have poured in every few seconds from all over the world, including the US, UK, Turkey, Germany and Brazil.

MOAS strives to draw the shortest line possible between funds received and lives saved. In fact, we spend more than 85% of the funds we receive directly on saving lives. To this end, we keep administration costs to a bare minimum, ensuring that donations are pumped into the effort to rescue refugees from certain death.
