The Humanitarian Coalition is made up of seven leading agencies who work together to increase the impact, efficiency and effectiveness of Canadian responses to international disasters and emergencies. The following article and attached image are free to use in your publications. Should you wish to conduct an interview with a Canadian who has recently witnessed the devastation or a South Sudanese now in Canada, please contact Yosé Cormier at 613-292-2687.

When you donate to members of the Humanitarian Coalition, you are giving experienced aid workers, already helping on the ground in countries like Yemen and South Sudan, the ability to reach even more people. Together, we can indeed save more lives.

Imagine walking to the local market and finding only empty stalls.
