We the members of Development and Peace Lourdes would appreciate it if you would consider donating to this cause which is dear to our hearts.

Development and Peace/Caritas Canada is a democratic movement for international solidarity that supports over 100 partners in 35 countries in pursuing alternatives to unjust social, political and economic structures, as well as running education programs here in Canada. Some examples:

Philippines: Farmers receive rightful land titles and compensation from our partner RIGHTS, helping with food insecurity. 2020 has been a terrible year. In the past month alone, five typhoons have hammered the country. Over 100 people have died and 283K are in 2205 evacuation centres. ICST and Caritas Philippines need funds to repair infrastructure worth US$165M and agricultural damage of US$250M.

Brazil: funds needed for education re COVID hygiene, rebuild of homes after a dam was destroyed, calls for a moratorium on mining, logging and industrial agriculture in protected areas and indigenous communities of the Amazon.

Honduras: CEHPRODEC supports food sovereignty and human rights and anti-corruption. Also, Honduras has just been hit by two devastating tropical storms, ETA and IOTA. There is tremendous damage to the country's infrastructure and thousands of people are on the streets or in shelters. D&P's partner Eric/Radio Progreso is hoping to distribute 500 kits of basic rations, hygiene products and masks, if enough funds are raised.
