Fight the Famine
April 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$100
Join us for an evening of hope & inspiration as we raise funds to prevent famine in Somalia.
More than 6.3 million people in Somalia, half the country’s population, are starving and in need of urgent assistance. Agencies are struggling to avert what could be 3rd full-scale famine in 25 years, battling a nightmare combination of conflict, drought, disease, and cholera. Islamic Relief Canada is partnering with Fight the Famine, an initiative by the Somali-Canadian Relief Task Force, to raise $100k for the famine in Somalia. We need your help to move quickly and provide urgent relief every day in Somalia with emergency food aid packs and water trucks to combat starvation. Just $60 can provide a family with the basic necessities of life – food, water, and medical aid. Join us on April 30th for an evening of fundraising and helping prevent famine in Somalia. The evening will include performances, an art show and a silent auction with an opportunity to network. Buy your tickets today, and if you can’t make it, donate below! Tax receipts will be issued for all donations.
