From June 16 to 22, Just over 264,000 miles were donated by Aeroplan mile collectors, all of which were matched by Aeroplan. More donors than ever before supported us, and it means the world to us.
After the match, War Child will recieve 529,000 miles. What sort of impact will that have on our programs?
They can cover 17 trips overseas to help train local job-skills educators, or it could help send over 25 legal aid staff to training and conferences to ensure they have the most up-to-date skills for helping protect children and families in the dangerous regions that War Child works. These miles can also be used for vital equipment for our field staff that would otherwise need to be purchased with cash, such as laptops, computer monitors, phones or two-way radios.
On behalf of everyone at War Child, THANK YOU for being so generous and standing beside us in our mission to protect childhood, and our vision for a world where no child knows war.
