Direct donations for the work of UEM or donations for the UEM foundation: Both are equally good ways to help people.
Direct donations give direct help. The money goes directly into the chosen project and has an immediate impact. Direct donations are especially needed in the case of emergency relief operations.
If you prefer to help in the long run, donations to the UEM foundation make sense. The foundation adds it to its stock capital and the annual interest rises. only the interest is given to projects, the stock capital will not be touched.
