REMINDER: Special government match available for food emergency in South Sudan

Dear Foodgrains Bank Supporter,

Twenty million people in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria and Yemen are facing famine. It is being called the largest humanitarian crisis in over 70 years.

Canadian Foodgrains Bank is responding. Since January, we have provided $2.5 million of help for over 70,000 people.

But more needs to be done. Until June 30, the Canadian government will offer a 1:1 match on EVERY gift given towards famine relief in places we are working such as South Sudan, Nigeria and Somalia.
