Unstable conditions in countries like Somalia make it dangerous or impossible to sponsor children there, so we’ve created another way for you to help. Our Raw Hope program 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.
Children and families are well nourished, protected from infection and disease and have access to essential health services.
Boys and girls are safe and valued, well cared-for by their families and participating in their communities as agents of transformation.
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.
