Canada announces additional $331.5M in humanitarian aid for vulnerable population



Montreal - Canadian International Development Minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau, announced Tuesday an additional $331.5 million in humanitarian aid for vulnerable population.



The announcement was made at the World Humanitarian Summit, held in Istanbul (Turkey).

Bibeau said in a statement that the new funding will help the most vulnerable in more than 32 countries.

Those who will receive the funding include United Nations humanitarian agencies, the Red Cross and non-governmental organizations, as well as Canadian organizations.

On Monday, Bibeau announced $274 million in humanitarian and development aid that focused on emergency response, child protection and food security.

During the summit, Bibeau emphasized the need to focus on women and girls in every humanitarian response, as well as Canada's commitment to be innovative and make every dollar count. She also assured that Canada will continue to defend humanitarian principles.

"Given the size of current humanitarian needs, Canada is committed to working with all partners, including those at the local level," Bibeau said.

"We are especially concerned with women and girls, who are often the most vulnerable in crises. That is why they are at the heart of Canada's humanitarian response."
