Middle East Conflict
January 2006

The Humanitarian Coalition members coordinated a comprehensive and efficient regional response to assist the people touched by this conflict in the Middle East. The Humanitarian Coalition members were already present in Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza, Israel, Jordan and Syria, all of which were affected by the crisis. The emergency response was based entirely on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable. The money raised went directly to the people in the region, providing food, water, child protection and social support where it was most needed. Humanitarian Coalition members distributed essential supplies during and immediately following the crisis, including diapers, milk, clothing, hygiene kits and blankets. Support continued after the violence abated with reconstruction projects for municipal water supplies, helping to bring water to more than 2000 homes. In all, Canadians’ generous donations directly helped improve the lives of more than 27,000 people, of which a majority were children.
