Minister Oda announces Canada’s response to the humanitarian crisis in East Africa
The Government of Canada has announced that, for every dollar donated to a Canadian charity helping with relief efforts, they will allocate a dollar to the East Africa Drought Relief Fund.
For every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities, Canada will set aside one dollar for the East Africa Drought Relief Fund. CIDA will allocate these funds to established Canadian and international humanitarian organizations for humanitarian assistance efforts that benefit the people most affected by the drought.
The fund will provide effective and accountable financial support to experienced Canadian and international humanitarian partner organizations working in the affected areas of East Africa.
