The Canadian Aid Relief Project aims to provide aid relief to calamity prone countries like the Philippines. It is organized to help focus and sustain the relief effort of the Canadian community to healthcare delivery in disaster areas where help is desperately needed after a calamity. It aims to alleviate the pervasive poverty that follows a calamity by delivering health care to low income families in disaster areas. We believe that effective relief work is best undertaken when preparation and planning are done way before these natural disasters occurs.
