The Humanitarian Coalition announced that CARE Canada will use $468,898 from the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF) to help 3,500 people affected by a recent earthquake in Pakistan.
In July and August 2010, Pakistan experienced its worst flooding in living memory. Four provinces, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Punjab, Sindh and Baluchistan were hit hard. An estimated 2000 people died and 14-18 million more were left in desperate need of assistance.
The members of the Humanitarian Coalition (HC), a network of Canadian NGOs determined to unite in cases of humanitarian crises, began life-saving responses almost immediately. The HC launched a joint national appeal to raise awareness about the disaster and rally Canadians to support the disaster.
Six months after catastrophic flooding forced millions of Pakistanis to flee their homes in search of higher ground, HUMANITARIAN COALITON members are warning that winter temperatures have introduced new threats to already vulnerable flood survivors.
"The number of women, men and children who are malnourished has reached alarming levels," said Robert Fox, Oxfam Canada Executive Director. "For them, this emergency is far from over.
September 30, 2010 - With just days left in the Government of Canada's campaign to match individual donations to Pakistan flood relief, the members of the HUMANITARIAN COALITION are announcing that they have together raised over $3.3 million towards this cause. Over $3 million of that is eligible for government matching funds.
"The basic idea behind the Humanitarian Coalition is that together we can accomplish more, together we can save more lives," said David Morley, president and CEO of Save the Children Canada.
