Our income in 2012 was 3% higher than in 2011. Over 98% of our expenditure was on charitable activities. Our fundraising costs for voluntary income are very low because we do not raise funds from the public directly. In accordance with our reserves policy, we have a net increase in unrestricted general funds.
