Fundraising for the drought-affected families in Somalia #Caawiwalaal

Share This Post

I am fundraising for the drought-affected families whose situation is getting desperate by the minute. The drought has affected so many lives in Somalia and our people are dying of hunger and thirst. There are fears that a full-blown famine might follow if the rains don\’t come soon. I am one of the many Somalis who is frustrated by the very poor response and the lack of coordination of efforts.

Many thanks and God bless them and you as well. Success in life is not counted by how high you have climbed the ladder of your own life but by how many people you brought with you.
