Oxfam Welcomes Matching Fund for Nepal Earthquake
April 27, 2015
Oxfam welcomes the Government of Canada’s Matching Fund program for the Nepal earthquake.
Julie Delahanty, Oxfam Canada's Executive Director, said: "This will double the power of donations from generous Canadians, and go even further in life-saving operations, ensuring the people of Nepal are able to recover as quickly as possible from this terrible crisis."
As the death toll continues to rise, Oxfam is on the ground, providing vital supplies of water, sanitation and shelter to 350,000 people. The situation is dire, and the full scale of the devastation will only be revealed in the days to come as access to remote communities is slowly restored.
