Families in Somalia need our help! In 5 regions of Somalia, famine has been declared. The United Nations expects that famine will have spread across all regions within two months. The situation is critical according to the UN, with 10,000 children under the age of five dying each month. Up to September 16, 2011 every dollar we donate will see the Federal Government of Canada contribute an equivalent amount to the East Africa D…rought Relief Fund.
A group of businesses and affiliated companies in support of Oxfam Canada, have banded together to make a difference in one day! The event is called the “It Takes a Village” Campaign and will be taking place September 10, 2011 throughout Davie Village and beyond!
On that date we ask that patrons of businesses in the area donate generously towards Somalia relief efforts by frequenting businesses displaying the “It Takes A Village” poster in the window. This event will be happening all day and evening so come out and enjoy some time in the Village and support the relief effort.
