Help Relieve Famine in Africa and double the impact of your gift!
More than 20 million people in East Africa are at risk of starvation as a result of severe drought conditions and intensifying conflict. Children are being particularly affected by these humanitarian crises as some 1.4 million are now at risk of death from severe acute malnutrition. Basic necessities such as urgent food assistance, water, sanitation services, healthcare, shelter and other essential services are needed.
At the present time SIM has relief efforts operating in South Sudan and Ethiopia. Your gifts to the Emergency Relief fund will be disbursed to these countries where most needed.*
On May 29, the Canadian Government announced that they will match every dollar given to Canadian Charities from now until June 30, 2017, with funds going to assist relief efforts in the following East African countries:
- South Sudan
As well as these West Africa countries
*Please Note: The Government’s matching dollar does not come to SIM. The government matches your gift to SIM (or any other participating registered charity) and disburses these funds to Canadian and international organizations best equipped to address the famine needs in the countries listed above.
