Not only are the inaugural Wealth Professional Awards brought to you by Invesco an opportunity to recognize the outstanding advisors, teams, and firms, it’s also a chance to help the Humanitarian Coalition make a difference in Nepal.
“We are delighted that Invesco and Wealth Professional are raising funds to support our agencies' relief efforts in Nepal,” said Humanitarian Coalition Executive Director Nicolas Moyer, pointing to the June 5 gala ceremony at Toronto’s Liberty Grand. “Affected communities will need our help through the long recovery and rebuilding phases of this disaster. We thank you on their behalf."
The Humanitarian Coalition is Canada's only joint appeal mechanism for international disasters and emergencies. It is made up of five leading humanitarian agencies: CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec, Plan Canada, and Save the Children Canada. Collectively, they have a presence in more than 120 countries.
In Nepal, the task is daunting, but years of experience in the region and solid partnerships with local organizations means that the five agencies are having a tangible impact. Together, they are saving more lives. To learn more go to www.together.ca
