Cette famine que l’on ignore

Cette famine que l’on ignore

Lorsque vous faites un don à des organisations humanitaires canadiennes, vous donnez la possibilité à des travailleurs humanitaires d’avoir une action plus large. Vous faites une différence. Ensemble, nous pouvons sauver plus de vies.
La Coalition Humanitaire est le seul organisme conjoint de collecte de fonds au Canada pour les urgences humanitaires. Ses membres, présents dans 150 pays, facilitent le processus de dons en contexte d’urgence. Grâce à un mécanisme conjoint d’appel de dons, la Coalition Humanitaire réduit les coûts de la collecte de fonds et maximise l’impact des dons de la population canadienne là où les besoins se font sentir.

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.

Cross-Border Partnership Benefits Conservation

There has been a lot of interest and coverage in recent days about close relations between Canada and the United States and meetings between our respective political leaders to discuss issues of mutual interest.

Among these many common issues, one area where there has been friendship and considerable goodwill for more than 30 years is the shared pursuit of conservation. It is a huge success story that has involved vision and partnership.
