Unstable conditions in countries like Iraq make it dangerous or impossible to sponsor children there, so we’ve created another way for you to help. Our Raw Hope initiative provides life-saving essentials to children and families in eight dangerous contexts: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Canadians are standing with the world’s most vulnerable children.
Together, we're making real change in the lives of children, families and communities. Just some of what was achieved with Canadian support in the past year:
Children and families have access to safe water and sanitation facilities, and training in hygiene practices to stay healthy.
Children learn and develop their talents, young people are equipped for the future and families support children's education.
Adults and youth acquire knowledge and skills, and gain access to resources, to help them increase their family income.
