The Numbers: The World Children's Fund

Key financial figures relating to the fund, which provides financial assistance to children and disaster relief in less stable parts of the world

£7.11m - The charity's income for the year ending March 2009, compared with £3.1m in the previous year. The reason for the sharp increase, the charity says, is that it received goods for distribution worth £4.37m, which it valued at wholesale cost

12% - The year-on-year fall in the value of donations to the charity, to £2.7m in 2009 from £3.07m in 2008

£2.02m - The cost of generating voluntary income. The charity raised £7.07m, giving it a fundraising ratio of 29 pence in the pound. The previous year no money was spent on fundraising

£869k - Free reserves at year-end, compared with £699,000 in the previous year. The charity says it does not have a fixed reserves policy, but seeks to maximise benefits to both present and future beneficiaries

£60k - No employee was paid more than this. The charity had a total of three employees during the year, and two in the year before that

£2.5m - The total value of medicines delivered to Sudan - the largest single project undertaken by the charity during the year.
