About FH Canada:

Founded in 1988, FH Canada (FHC) is part of the global Food for the Hungry association dedicated to ending poverty one community at a time. FH Canada takes an integrated approach towards eradicating poverty and achieving sustainability. Its programs focus on agriculture, education, health, leadership and gender equality. In F2015, FHC worked with 57 communities in 9 countries around the world. FHC has operations in Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, Bangladesh and Cambodia.

Some program highlights from F2015 include 484,540 plants supplied to farmers in Ethiopia; 838 members from 48 new Saving & Loans Groups in Cambodia saved $3,075 in their first year; 1,007 students received school uniforms and study materials in Burundi; 346 people received medical insurance in Rwanda; and emergency response was provided to refugees in Burundi and Syria.

FHC  aims to work alongside communities, helping them become independent and sustainable. In F2015, 11 communities reached graduation, meaning that they no longer require FHC’s assistance. There are 8 graduated communities in Anglong Veng, Cambodia. Within these communities, 99% of families have food year-round, 90% of girls in five villages attend school, and 61 Savings & Loans Groups have saved over $124,000.
