The safety and well-being of civilians must be a top priority. Canada remains steadfast in its call for compliance with international humanitarian law. We urge all parties to actively facilitate the swift and unobstructed passage of essential humanitarian relief to civilians in need, underscoring our collective responsibility to uphold the principles of humanity, dignity, and protection for all. Today, the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of International Development, announced that Canada is providing an initial million in funding for humanitarian assistance in response to recent appeals from experienced and trusted humanitarian partners to address urgent needs stemming from the crisis in Israel, West Bank and the Gaza Strip. This funding will help provide food, water, emergency medical assistance, protection services and other life-saving assistance. Canada will ensure that no money goes into the hands of Hamas. Details on allocations to specific partners will be shared in the coming days. A portion of the funding will support the Canadian Red Cross and its partners – the Palestine Red Crescent Society and Magen David Adom. October 12, 2023 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada
