Mission Statement

The mission of the Canadian Aid and Relief Project (CARP) is to make a positive difference in the lives of people affected by natural disasters by providing relief medicines and health care services especially to the low income families in the disaster stricken areas.

A Dire Need

Every year, the Philippines is visited by more than 20 typhoons. According to the Philippine Red Cross, 31,835 Filipinos were killed and 94,369,462 others were affected by natural disasters and calamities in a span of 20 years. Most of them died from diseases after the calamities. Canadians standby and watch not knowing what to do to help.

"The Philippines was a natural laboratory for floods, typhoons, monsoon rains, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and landslides," Philippine National Red Cross governor Dante Liban said. (Source: Philippine Daily Inquirer)

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.
