More donations are urgently needed to help survivors of the two massive earthquakes.
Work continues in an effort to save lives in the aftermath of the first 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated the nation and a second one that struck this week. Sadly, the death toll has climbed to 8,000 people. More than 17,000 are injured, and 600,000 people have been displaced from their homes.
A donation of $50, $75, $100 or even more if you are able, given the growing need in the aftermath of the most recent earthquake this week, will ensure that devastated families can begin rebuilding their lives as soon as possible. The Government of Canada, recognizing the enormous need, is matching all eligible donations dollar-for-dollar up until May 25, 2015 (Learn more about the Government of Canada's donation match.).
Please give what you can so we can help as many survivors as possible in the aftermath of these two terrible tragedies.
Donate by phone at (toll-free) 1-866-525-HOPE(4673).
