About Focus Humanitarian Assistance:
Founded in 1994, Focus Humanitarian Assistance (FOCUS) is an international crisis response and disaster risk management agency. Its mission is “to save lives, reduce suffering and create resilience in communities prone to man-made or natural disasters.” FOCUS has four main programs: Prevention (7% of program costs), Response (7%), Assistance (52%), and Mitigation (34%).
Following the 7.6 magnitude earthquake in Tajikistan in December 2015, FOCUS, under its Assistance program, partnered with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the United States Agency for International Development and built 26 yurts in the Burtang Valley to offer villagers a warm place to sleep, cook a hot meal, and offer shelter away from the harsh elements. In June 2016, FOCUS delivered vital food supplies provided by the United Nations World Food Programme to 1,546 individuals in Afghanistan who have been suffering from the country's severe food shortages.
Focus Humanitarian Assistance is a big-cap charity with $7m in F2015 donations. Its administrative costs are 5% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 3% of donations. For every dollar donated, 93 cents go towards FOCUS’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. The charity has $11.9m in funding reserves, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 160%. This means that the charity can cover 1.6 years of its annual program costs using its existing reserves.
