    One year after the #NepalQuake, Canada commits $24.7 million in new support for recovery and reconstruction: http://bit.ly/1NvnqsM The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, today marked the first anniversary of last year’s devastating earthquakes in Nepal. Between April 25 and May 25, 2015, Canadians generously donated a total of $51.7 million to eligible organizations. Immediately after the earthquakes, Canada provided $27 million in humanitarian assistance to deliver emergency shelter, food and medical assistance, relief supplies, protection and education services, and access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. Since then, efforts on the ground have transitioned from short-term relief to recovery and reconstruction. To this end, the Government of Canada has committed $24.7 million from the Relief Fund to support Nepal’s rebuilding phase. This includes $10 million that will go to the World Bank’s Nepal Rural Housing Reconstruction Program Multi-Donor Trust Fund.

    60 Days for 60 Million Displaced People The members of the Humanitarian Coalition unveiled today a national campaign in the lead up to World Refugee Day, on June 20th, to raise awareness and funds for the 60 million people displaced around the world. Supported by the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, and Arif Virani, Parliamentary Secretary for the Honourable John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, the “Help Them Dream Again” (link is external) campaign aims to mobilize all Canadians in support of refugees worldwide, with a particular focus on children. Together, they call on Canadian humanitarian organizations and the corporate sector to join the campaign and encourage all Canadians to get involved. “Today we start a 60 day countdown to World Refugee Day on June 20th – 60 days for the 60 million people forcibly displaced from their homes due to disasters, conflict and crises. More than half of this number are children. We’ve seen so much generosity and compassion from Canadians for the Syrian refugees. We ask Canadians to see this as an opportunity to better understand and support the millions of refugees who will never make Canada their home and the efforts underway to assist them around the world,” said Patricia Erb, Chair of the Humanitarian Coalition and President & CEO of Save the Children. Humanitarian Coalition members CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Quebec, Plan International Canada and Save the Children are proud to collaborate with trusted partners such as the UNHCR Canada, World Vision Canada, Islamic Relief Canada and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to promote the needs of refugees and displaced people worldwide. The participation of other Canadian international NGOs is welcome as the campaign unfolds. “Behind the numbers, refugees are ordinary people facing extraordinarily difficult situations. From Yemen to Jordan, from Cameroon to Kenya, refugees need our attention, but also the care and assistance they need to rebuild their lives. We welcome this campaign by Canadian partners to highlight the plight of refugees around the world,” said Minister Bibeau. The campaign has already enlisted the backing of key corporate and media partners, and an official announcement will be made once agreements have been finalized. In the meantime, Canadian businesses are encouraged to join this effort. ‘’All over the world, people are leaving their homeland due to war and conflict. Canada is strongly committed to resettling refugees from all around the world and 2016 is expected to be the most ambitious resettlement year in Canadian history. I thank Canadians for showing our values of compassion, kindness, and generosity by supporting this campaign,’’ said Mr. Virani. "UNHCR has been calling for more support and increased solidarity with refugees all over the world. We are happy to support this campaign by Canadian humanitarian agencies, which is yet again another demonstration of Canada's longstanding commitment to help and assist refugees," said Furio De Angelis, UNHCR Representative in Canada. Canadians can learn more and help raise their voice for the 60 million displaced people at www.worldrefugeeday.com (link is external) Together, we can save more lives.

    “Child Friendly Space activities help children affected by the conflict adapt to their new environment. I remember children who drew in black colors and didn’t communicate with the other children. After attending the CFS sessions, they started to use bright colors in their drawings and play with the other children,” says Marina*, who works as an administrator in Save the Children’s Child Friendly Space in Zaporizhia, about the Healing and Education Through the Arts (HEART) activities. “My daughter attended HEART activities which helped her cope with stress”. Thanks to the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, European Commission - Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection (ECHO), Canada’s International Development – Global Affairs Canada and Sida - Styrelsen för Internationellt Utvecklingssamarbete for supporting our Child Friendly Spaces in Ukraine which provide children with a safe space where they can overcome their experiences through structured activities and psychosocial support. *Name has been changed to protect identity
