Donate today to support humanitarian relief efforts to ease the suffering of people forced from their homes and homelands.
Your support will help the Canadian Red Cross assist in the arrival of 25,000 Syrian refugees over the coming months.
Our work will help to bridge the gaps in social services and support refugee families as they transition to life in Canada. These services may include psychosocial support, case management for Canadian Red Cross programming and Restoring Family Links services to help refugees connect with their loved ones. Your donation may also help provide referral services and community grants for access to education, learning and economic security. In certain situations, your donation may be applied to other needs in support of refugees that are unforeseen at this time.
Canadian Red Cross Appeals
When we launch an appeal, donations made in response to it are used to help communities and countries identified in the appeal to recover from emergencies and disasters by providing immediate assistance and relief. Once these urgent needs have been met, we may use any remaining funds in and beyond the region to strengthen resilience to future emergencies and disasters or to provide humanitarian aid in the event that new needs arise.
The fundraising cost related to any emergency appeal will not exceed five per cent. Remaining funds will be used for Red Cross operations to support vulnerable people, families and communities.
