Appeal for Famine Relief 

The Horn of Africa, the region of Africa including Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya and the new Republic of South Sudan is experiencing the worst drought in 60 years. Over 11 million people face possible starvation.

The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace is one of several charities that have been designated as a qualified agency under a Federal Government fund-matching program, meaning that every dollar donated through them to African relief by September 16, 2011 will be matched by the Federal Government.

Those wishing to make a donation can do so online at:

or by telephone at: 1-888-664-3387 or by mailing their cheque made out to
"Development and Peace - Drought in the Horn of Africa" to:
