World Humanitarian Day (August 19)

In communities ravaged by violent conflict, people are driven from their homes and left without access to food, water and safe shelter. The horror of life disrupted by conflict has become a tragic reality for Alifa from Myanmar. She still feels numb with shock nine months after being forced to flee her home when the military opened fire on her village. Alifa and her family managed to find shelter in Bangladesh, but the uncertainty of life keeps her in darkness. What does bring comfort is that she has been able to feed her children through support from PWS&D and members of Canadian Foodgrains Bank. This support is keeping Alifa's family alive until they can return to a peaceful home.
