There are not enough words to express our gratitude for your partnership in addressing the urgent needs around hunger worldwide. According to the World Food Programme, the COVID-19 pandemic, severe weather, conflict and increasing costs have resulted in a crisis of hunger not seen before in modern history. Statistics estimate that as many as 828 million are hungry – that’s ten percent of the global population.
Your donations through this campaign will be matched by the Government of Canada through CBM’s projects at the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. As well, a good friend of CBM has agreed to match funds towards other CBM food security projects. This unique arrangement ensures your gift will be doubled in a 1:1 match, with some projects receiving as much as a 4:1 match!
