    Canada announces final tally of Syria Emergency Relief Fund and additional programming through Canadian and international partners The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, today announced funding of $100 million to help the most vulnerable communities affected by the Syrian crisis. Canadians generously donated a total of $31.8 million to charitable organizations in response to the conflict in Syria, which the Government of Canada will match through the Syria Emergency Relief Fund. The Minister also announced that the government is going beyond the matching fund with an additional $68.2 million in humanitarian assistance to address the needs of people across the region affected by the Syrian conflict. The government’s $31.8-million contribution to the matching fund will be entirely allocated to the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF). This contribution will increase education opportunities, provide child-protection services in Syria and Jordan and support immunization efforts for children in Syria, responding to critical needs and building the resilience of conflict-affected communities. The balance of today’s $100-million funding announcement will be allocated to trusted Canadian and international partners, whose work includes a multi-purpose emergency assistance program in Iraq and providing life-saving assistance, such as shelter, food, health care and water, to conflict-affected families in Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. Minister Bibeau made the announcement alongside representatives of numerous Canadian non-governmental organizations, including Action Against Hunger / Action contre la Faim Canada, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, CLWR - Canadian Lutheran World Relief, CARE Canada, Development and Peace - Caritas Canada, Handicap International Canada, Médecins du Monde Canada, Oxfam-Québec, UNICEF Canada and World Vision Canada. http://www.international.gc.ca/media/dev/news-communiques/2016/04/13a.aspx?lang=eng

    Statement by Minister Bibeau on World Health Day “The right to health is shared by all people. Yet too many of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people do not have the opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives. “Women and girls face particular challenges, including access to sexual and reproductive health services. In addition, a disproportionate number of women and children succumb to malnutrition and preventable diseases, such as pneumonia and diarrhea, simply because they do not have access to enough nutritious food, clean water and basic health care. “That is why we work closely with our partners to improve the health of women and children. And we are proud that our support is contributing to positive changes on a number of critical fronts. “Through concerted international action over the last few decades, much progress has been made to improve the health and nutrition of people in the developing world. Since 1990, mortality rates for mothers and for children under five have greatly decreased. The proportion of undernourished people has been cut by almost half. There has been a steady decline in malaria and tuberculosis deaths. And polio cases have fallen by more than 99 percent. “On World Health Day, Canada reaffirms its commitment to working with global partners, such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; the Global Polio Eradication Initiative; and the Every Woman Every Child movement, to close the existing health gaps, particularly in access to reproductive health care and services.”
