TIS+ Staff Emergency Assistance

Over this past weekend, a truck bomb went off in the center of Mogadishu, Somalia's capital, killing over 300 people, and leaving many others with critical injuries. 

One of our TIS+ staff members lost his brother in the attack, while his father was  also seriously injured.  On behalf of our TIS+ family, we are currently trying to raise $1,000 to help cover both funeral expenses and medical assistance. His brother leaves behind a wife and three children. Any additional funds recieved will contribute to their family needs and well being. 

We appreciate any donations that are made to help relieve the financial burden of our dear friend and staff member, during this time of heartbreak and mourning.

All donations will be provided to our TIS+ finance manager, in Nairobi, who will transfer the money directly to our colleague based in Mogadishu.
