Canada: 7 Aid Agencies Working Together to Fight Famine

The Humanitarian Coalition and its seven member agencies welcome the Government of Canada announcement that for every eligible donation made by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities between March 17 and June 30, 2017, it will contribute an equivalent amount to the Famine Relief Fund.

More than 20 million children, women and families in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Uganda are suffering and in need of urgent humanitarian aid and the Humanitarian Coalition’s member agencies are on the ground providing life-saving assistance.

The Humanitarian Coalition is urgently calling on Canadians to donate to its joint fundraising campaign: “Stop Famine Together.” Over the next month, the Canadian Government matches donations dollar for dollar into its Famine Relief Fund, meaning that donations will go twice as far to fight famine
