Canadian Red Cross launches appeal for Africa Humanitarian Crisis

December 20, 2022 
By Canadian Red Cross

The Canadian Red Cross has launched the Africa Humanitarian Crisis Appeal to support people hit hard by multiple humanitarian crises in Somalia and other impacted African countries.

The combination of droughts, floods, and severe climate effects are having severe impacts on people and their communities. The Red Cross and Red Crescent are working as quickly as possible to coordinate emergency efforts to help people in Somalia and other African countries.  The support may include health care, relief supplies and assistance for individuals and families, displaced populations, and those experiencing food insecurity.

Money raised will enable the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Somalia and other impacted African countries to provide immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and preparedness for future events in and around the impacted regions.

Canadians wishing to make a donation to the Africa Humanitarian Crisis Appeal can do so online at or by calling 1-800-418-1111.
