African Famine Relief Efforts

At least 17 countries in Africa are struggling to cope with two consecutive years of drought. More than 20 million people in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and northeast Nigeria are at risk of starvation and famine.

In response, ETFO, through both provincial and local contributions, is donating a total of $121,000 to the African famine relief efforts, largely through donations to Oxfam Canada and the Canadian Red Cross.

The action is part of ETFO’s ongoing efforts to support those facing extreme hardship and personal crisis within Canada and beyond our borders.​
