May 2002
Whereas: 
  1. There is an increasing number of reports of deficient services in refugee camps such as insufficient food;
  2. These deficiencies have been cited as one of the major factors exposing refugee women to sexual exploitation by those who are charged with distributing food and other humanitarian relief;
  3. In several refugee camps in Africa the World Food Program has cut down the food ration for refugees;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR request the government of Canada to:

  1. Increase its contribution to the UNHCR and to send its contribution in a timely manner;
  2. Provide adequate and appropriate funding to the World Food Program for food aid for refugees.
