With 20 million women, children and men struggling to find food and safe drinking water in parts of Africa and Yemen, Canadians donated more than $8 million to the Humanitarian Coalition and its member agencies during the Stop Famine Together joint campaign.
Thanks to the Government of Canada’s Famine Relief Fund, which matched eligible donations, even more relief aid is available to those in need.
In 2011, East Africa suffered from one of the worst droughts in 60 years which left more than 13 million people in need of food, water and emergency healthcare.
Canadian donors contributed $14 million to the Humanitarian Coalition’s joint appeal for East Africa's drought of 2011. These funds helped to set up activities such as the delivery of emergency food, basic healthcare, and water sanitation kits. Nutrition centres and child education programs also played a significant role in the response.
The projects funded by the Humanitarian Coalition (HC) and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) have, without a doubt, contributed to improving the quality of life of beneficiary households, and will impact, to some degree, upon their recovery, through asset building, and livelihoods enhancement. The experienced agencies involved have ensured that very high standards of project design and implementation have been achieved and best practice programming has been largely in evidence throughout.
Ottawa, ON (August 17, 2011) - The HUMANITARIAN COALITION wishes to express its gratitude to the Government of Canada and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) for its contribution of $8.5 million for relief efforts in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, announced today.
The money, which is part of the Government’s pledge to aid relief efforts in the Horn of Africa, will go to three of the HUMANITARIAN COALITION’s five members: CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada and Plan Canada.
