The Minister of International Development, Ahmed Hussen, announced late last week that the Canadian government will match donations made to members of the Humanitarian Coalition, up to a maximum of $10 million.  

“Canadians believe in helping others in times of need. And as a government, we know we have more to do to support Palestinian civilians in Gaza and the West Bank,” said Minister Hussen. “This is why we are joining forces with Canadians in supporting our partners on the ground that are providing urgent, life-saving assistance to those most severely impacted by this humanitarian crisis.” 

As a member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, the United Church is participating in the Humanitarian Coalition appeal to provide tangible support to people in the Middle East. Gifts raised through the generosity of Canadians for the United Church appeal between October 7 and November 12, 2023 can be doubled. 

Funds raised will help ACT Alliance, including Mission and Service partner the Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees (DSPR) deliver life-saving services to innocent civilians in Palestine including support for shelter, psychosocial support, food, medicines and other essential items.
