Reminder...KAIROS

We are in a time of crisis. Like so many, KAIROS is hard hit by the global financial crisis and new revenue cuts. Now more than ever, our justice work needs your help.

We promise that we will embrace the challenge, renew our efforts and learn from the people on whose behalf and with whom we work for justice.

Please make your gift of $60, $40, or any amount you can afford.

In Colombia, in Darfur, in the Philippines and here in Canada – people organize and work to end oppression, poverty, human rights abuses. They get up every day and transform their communities, often risking their lives.

Women are in the forefront of working for change, and deserve our support.
KAIROS brought Yolanda Becerra, a Colombian human rights worker, to Ottawa a few months ago, to meet Members of Parliament and Canadians.

She urged them to help stop the killings of human rights workers. She received death threats before coming here, just for demanding justice.

But she refuses to leave her work.

“Thank God I’m still alive,” Yolanda says. “KAIROS urgent actions helped protect me.”

KAIROS funds and advocates for partners like Yolanda around the world and in Canada. They teach us that social movements are full of courage and inspiration. They show us how to be true to our mission - no matter what. When you give to KAIROS you join a great momentum for justice.

Could you send a gift of $60, $40, or any amount you can afford? Your help will support people changing our world. We must stand with them.

Please visit kairoscanada.org to learn about all our work.

Thank you for whatever you can do.
