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.
Thanks to the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF), Humanitarian Coalition member Plan International Canada is assisting South Sudanese refugees seeking safety in Uganda’s West Nile Region.
The world’s youngest country just turned four years old and very few people noticed. In fact, on July 9th, there was no mention of the anniversary to be found in Canada’s leading news outlets. With so much else happening on the international stage, the lack of coverage is not a complete surprise.
On the third anniversary of South Sudan’s independence, the Humanitarian Coalition is extremely concerned by the rapidly rising demand for emergency assistance as well as the shortfall in funding required to address the needs of the most vulnerable.
The ongoing conflict in the world’s youngest country has displaced 1.5 million people, including almost 400,000 who fled to neighbouring Ethiopia, Uganda, Sudan, and Kenya. The turmoil is disrupting farming activities and impeding access to village markets, putting 4 million people at risk of severe hunger.
