In 2000, AHL received a bequest that has been used to support our interns and other expenses from 2000 - 2005.
From its inception, much of AHL's income has come from unsolicited donations by individuals from many countries and from all professions. Because of work promoting protection of hospitals in armed conflicts, AHL has received unsolicited donations from a number of medical doctors and specialized medical facilities. Donations vary in amount from several hundred to several thousands of dollars. Some of the donations are "matched" by a donor's employer. Smaller donations can be submitted by check or online and go a long way to advancing the organization's advocacy efforts on behalf of the victims of human rights crimes.
