Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund
Around the world, disasters occur frequently, more than 350 imes a year in fact! Although large disasters are generally well publicized, the majority of disasters are highly localized, affect comparatively less people and receive little media attention or funding.
But when a woman, man or child survives a disaster, whether 1,000 or 100,000 people are affected, their basic needs are the same and they desperately need our help.
Thanks to the unique partnership with Global Affairs Canada, the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF) allows the Humanitarian Coalition to respond quickly to such emergencies.
The CHAF makes funds available almost immediately, and our members, on the ground in more than 150 countries, can provide aid faster, meaning more lives saved.
The CHAF is financed by Global Affairs Canada (75%), the Humanitarian Coalition (10%) and the Humanitarian Coalition’s member agencies (15%). That means your donation to the Humanitarian Coalition goes 9 times further!
