About Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief:
Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR) is an international development agency that supports community efforts to ensure access to clean water, adequate food, primary health services and a safe and healthy environment. CPAR works with community members in remote rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa to implement long-term sustainable programs.
CPAR was founded in 1984 in response to the extreme famine and health crisis faced by Ethiopian refugees in Sudan. It has since expanded from Ethiopia to Malawi (1991), Uganda (1992), and Tanzania (2001). Physicians are an integral part of CPAR's base of supporters.
CPAR's work now revolves around the integrated objectives of developing access to clean water, adequate food, primary health care, secure livelihoods, and a healthy environment to support the needs of vulnerable communities in Africa.
The charity reports in F2016 that its Food Security project resulted in a 383% increase in average crop yield for participating farmers, and a 641% increase in average income.
Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief is a medium-sized charity with $2.2m in donations in F2016. Its administrative costs were 7% of revenues, and its fundraising costs were 17% of donations. For every dollar donated, 77 cents go towards CPAR’s programs, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. The charity has $1m in total funding reserves, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 85%. This means that CPAR can cover 10 months of its annual program costs using its existing reserves. While the charity does maintain an endowment fund, it does not disclose the respective allocations of donor-endowed and internally endowed funds by the board. As a result, Ci included all endowed funds in the funding reserves.
This report is an update and is currently under review by CPAR. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
