The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, announced yesterday in Ottawa that for every eligible donation made by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities between August 25 and November 28, 2017, the Government of Canada will DOUBLE all donations. We welcome the Government of Canada’s announcement of the Myanmar Relief Fund. We thank you for mobilizing Canadians to act now!
“Bangladesh is now hosting the world’s biggest refugee camp where over 900 000 Rohingya and other minorities are fleeing the ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. I encourage all Canadians to donate to the organization of their choice. Your donation will save lives and will allow them to be treated with dignity until they can return home.” – Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie
