PWRDF has sent an initial grant of $20,000 in relief funds for Syrian and other refugees seeking refuge in Europe and is responding through the ACT Alliance. ACT is providing food, water, shelter, health care, sanitation, education, and psychosocial support to over 300,000 refugees in Greece, Hungary and Serbia. Warm clothes and bedding will be provided for the winter months. PWRDF continues to provide relief through ACT and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) to displaced people within Syria, and to refugees in Jordan and Lebanon and through Refuge Egypt in Cairo.
The Government of Canada has announced the creation of the Syria Emergency Relief Fund and will match every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities in response to the impact of the conflict in Syria, up to $100 million, effective September 12 through December 31, 2015. For every dollar donated to PWRDF, the Canadian government will put one dollar into its Syria Emergency Relief Fund.
