Canada to provide CAD 9M in humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

Canada will provide CAD 9 million (about $7.5 million) to two aid organizations to help Ukrainians affected by the war.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, this was stated by the Ministry of International Development of Canada.

"Minister Sajjan announced $9 million in humanitarian and development funding to support people experiencing heightened vulnerability, including sexual and gender-based violence due to the war in Ukraine. The funding will be allocated to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and Humanity and Inclusion," the statement said.

In addition, Canada announced $2 million to support dairy farmers in western Ukraine, "creating opportunities for economic growth and helping to enhance food security in the region."

The agency added that to date in 2022, Canada has committed $245 million in humanitarian assistance to respond to the worsening humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
