English term or phrase: International Relief Fund
Detta är väl egentligen ett egennamn, men jag är ändå osäker på om jag ska översätta den eller låta det stå kvar. Det gäller Röda Korset i USA. Samma där ska jag skriva American Red Cross eller översätta det. Tack på förhand!

Explanation:
"amerikanska Röda Korsets internationella hjälpfond"

"Red Cross" is proper noun, but the owner of that noun has long ago decided to sanction the use of "Röda Korset" in the Swedish language. If the translation of the core word(s) of a proper noun is sanctioned then the translation of any pre- or postfixes is automatically sanctioned. I consider "Red Cross" to be the core of "American Red Cross International Relief Fund".
