On May 29, 2107 the federal government announced a 1:1 matching fund for famine relief in Africa and the Middle East. PWRDF has been working with different relief agencies on the ground in African countries experiencing famine and severe drought. Click on each for a description of the work.

South Sudan – $45,000
Kenya – $25,000
Somalia – $30,000
Nigeria – $32,000

Despite the generosity of Canadians thus far, the need is urgent and ongoing. Please consider supporting our Famine Relief appeal here.
