Montreal, August 23, 2018 – One year since the start of a mass exodus of Rohingya people fleeing violence and persecution in Burma (also known as Myanmar), there are now nearly one million refugees in neighbouring Bangladesh - and the crisis is far from over.
The scale of the destruction, pain and misery wrought by Typhoon Haiyan in the central part of the Philippines on November 8th, 2013, was staggering. The initial response provided life-saving support to millions of people in the affected region, however, the greater challenge has been to ensure that recovery and reconstruction efforts will leave devastated communities better prepared to withstand future shocks. The world may now be wondering how Typhoon Haiyan survivors have rebuilt their communities?
Montreal, December 15, 2017 – Development and Peace – Caritas Canada wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude to its donors for their quick and generous response to the crisis affecting the Rohingya people of Myanmar.
