Finances

LAMB as a whole costs about £1,200,000 a year to run.  Some of this has been funded by international donors, but the level of major grants varies and provides no security for the longer term.  LAMB charges for its services where possible and obtains income locally from training Government and NGO health workers, technical assistance and consultancy work.  However LAMB’s commitment to serve the poor regardless of ability to pay means that it will never recover all its costs.

LAMB Health’s current target is to maintain a level of voluntary donations from the UK of £50,000 a year (excluding special donations received for capital projects). The Foundation relies on donations from individuals in the UK and some churches and grant-giving trusts.  Its small running costs are all met by the Trustees themselves.
