With the amount of tragedy in the news today, the impulse to give to causes overseas is a common feeling. But when sending money to a faraway organization, it can be difficult to know if your money is getting there and if it is being used wisely.
Luckily, our good friends at Charity Intelligence have recommended seven agencies working overseas that achieve high efficiency with your hard-earned dollars. These charities are principally involved with the current refugee crisis but they perform plenty of other services in countries around the world, from search and rescue operations to health services, education and long-term support.
- Doctors Without Borders Canada
- Islamic Relief
- Canadian Red Cross
- Unicef Canada
- War Child Canada
- World Vision Canada
- United Nations High Commission on Refugees
You can donate directly to any of these charities via Chimp.
