The Humanitarian Coalition consists of seven charitable member agencies: Canadian Lutheran World Relief, CARE Canada, Islamic Relief Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec, Plan Canada and Save the Children Canada. All Canadian humanitarian agencies that meet the membership criteria are invited to join in this initiative.
Media and private sector partners are invited to participate in this joint action during times of humanitarian crisis, when the needs are greatest. The Humanitarian Coalition strives to provide the Canadian public and media with the most relevant information during a crisis. Member agencies combine to pursue media and private sector support for the Canadian appeal process.
Emergency Appeals Alliance:
The Humanitarian Coalition is also inspired by humanitarian agencies around the world that have realized the power of joint action. Together, they form what is currently called the Emergency Appeals Alliance (EAA). The EAA is comprised of other aid agencies who work together to respond to humanitarian emergencies around the world.
