African Community Emergency Relief Fund (ACERF)

One of the major challenges faced by immigrants in the African community is how to effectively deal with emergency situations related to deaths, funerals in Canada and back at their home countries. Several consultation with members of the community and recommendation from research reveal the need for an emergency relief fund (ACERF) in creating a resilient family and community.

The goal of the fund is to create an accessible financial base tailored to meet the needs of members during times of emergency and/or retirement. Members who have been actively contributing into investment portfolios would be eligible to borrow from the emergency fund without interest.

 


To benefit from the fund, please register and pay five years membership fee of $50 plus contributions into your investment area of interest.
