167. I did look up the Canadian Red Cross and it seems they are
getting supplies through. You are correct that the Govt. of Canada is matching funds donated for Somalia.

Red Cross commits $1 Million to relief efforts in Kenya and Somalia

To date, Red Cross efforts include deploying 14 mobile health clinics which have given urgently needed medical assistance to almost 18,000 people, providing clean water to almost half a million people and distributing over 300 tons of seeds to farmers who have lost crops.

The Government of Canada will match the donations of individual Canadians between July 6 and September 16, 2011. Those funds will go into a relief fund that is separate from the Canadian Red Cross and will be administered by the Government of Canada. Funds from the matching program will support on-going humanitarian assistance in drought-affected parts of East Africa.
