Raw Hope

I once saw violence
Now I see courage

Your donation has made an impact on someone’s life

Most Canadians can describe their childhood as being safe and secure. But, in many places around the world, millions of children face threats of forced military service, child marriage and hazardous labour. War, economic disaster and food crisis turn these fears into reality.   

Your support enables us to continually provide life-saving essentials such as food, clean water, medicine and education. We also work with communities for the long haul to help implement solutions for generations to come.

Together, we’ve impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty. Thank you for partnering with us in our mission to transform lives and brighten futures.

Where is my money going? 

Your donations, combined with those of other partners and government grants, will have an immediate and lasting impact that
•    saves the lives of children at risk or in immediate danger; 
•    gives children safety, dignity and hope; and 
•    helps create long term solutions for a brighter future. 

You can help courageous local aid workers to bring hope and change for children living in unstable places around the world, such as Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries with refugee and internally displaced populations. 

Why can't I sponsor a child in these areas? 

Raw Hope supports work in the most dangerous places where it is too unstable for child sponsorship to be established. 
Am I able to select which country my donations will go to? 

Unfortunately, no. But you can be assured that your Raw Hope donations will help to meet the immediate needs of vulnerable children such as access to clean water, healthcare, education and more. 

What will I receive as a donor? 

As a monthly donor, you will receive a welcome package as well as regular email updates on how you're changing the lives of children living in the world’s most dangerous places.
