Like other Nonprofit National organizations, Relief Pakistan rely on various sources to support their activities: private donations, UN Agencies (UNICEF, WFP, and UNOCHA) and USAID Small grants Programs. The mix and importance of each source generally varies by type of service, but the ability to access these financial resources is critical for creating a stable financial base for the area’s nonprofit sector.
