The Government of Canada extends deadline to match donations for Pakistan flood relief

2010-09-12

TORONTO, 13 September 2010 - The Government of Canada will extend the deadline to match all individual donations in support of Pakistan flood relief until October 3, 2010.

Canadians who donate to UNICEF Canada’s Pakistan relief fund between August 2 and October 3 will be able to double their impact for children and families in need of life-saving supplies. The Government of Canada will match individual contributions to registered charities dollar-for-dollar to its Pakistan Flood Relief Fund. 

UNICEF and partners are providing the largest humanitarian response in Pakistan. Donations to UNICEF Canada will help provide life-saving food, water and health care supplies and essential child protection and education services in every flood-affected province.

Seize the opportunity to match your donation by donating to our Pakistan flood relief efforts today.
