Famine Relief Fund final tally
In response to humanitarian crises, including an unprecedented famine, food insecurity and conflict-induced displacements, affecting over 55 million people in Yemen and countries across Africa, including Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan, Canadians generously donated over $21.3 million to registered Canadian charities between March 17 and June 30, 2017.
As announced by the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, on May 29, 2017, for every eligible donation made by individuals to registered Canadian charities, the Government of Canada will contribute an equivalent amount to the Famine Relief Fund.
