Funds donated to PWRDF to support earthquake relief in Haiti are being matched by the Government of Canada, it was announced today.
The government will match every donation made to the Humanitarian Coalition and its members, who include the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. PWRDF is a member of the Foodgrains Bank, and therefore our donations are eligible. The match applies retroactively to funds donated from August 16 until September 3, 2021, up to a maximum of $2 million.
The Matching Fund, created in collaboration with the Coalition, will help Canada mobilize resources to deliver life-saving assistance in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on August 14, 2021. The Government of Canada continues to monitor the situation and remains in close contact with humanitarian partners to assess and respond to evolving needs.
PWRDF has given $25,000 to an ACT Alliance response and continues to be in contact with our partners on the ground.
