Seven aid agencies working together to fight famine


‘Stop Famine Together’ Campaign

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 17 March 20117 and 30 June 2017, it will contribute an equivalent amount to the Famine Relief Fund.

More than 20 millions 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 will match donations dollar for dollar into its Famine Relief Fund. That means the donations will go twice as far to fight famine and save lives.

The characteristic resilience of the communities who live through regular cycles of drought or survive despite harsh conflict conditions has been pushed to its breaking point. Without help, they will not survive. This campaign hopes that to save more lives.
