CEP donates $25,000 to Pakistan emergency relief

TORONTO, Aug. 26 /CNW/ - The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) has donated $25,000, through its Humanity Fund, to Oxfam emergency flood relief efforts in Pakistan and is raising additional funds from members and Local unions across the country.

CEP is urging members and Locals to give generously to the growing need for assistance for the 20 million citizens impacted by the flood. "The need continues to be great in Pakistan and CEP members and their families have a proud tradition of helping those in need," said CEP President Dave Coles.   

Combined, the Canadian labour movement has already pledged more than $160,000 for the relief effort in Pakistan.

The CEP Humanity Fund is a member-supported fund that helps people facing disasters and poverty, promotes decent work and supports equitable development in Canada and around the world.
