Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Our Names are Liban Adam, Khalid , Nadira ,Hafsa ,Hani,Mohemed and Mido we are part of the Somali Youth that live in the Twin Cities. I am writing you this letter to raise funds to offer immediate relief to our Somali brothers and sisters that are hit hard by famine that is now going on in many parts of Northern and South, Northeastern Somalia and southern Somalia.
*SuggestedMinimum donation 50$ , but ALL Donations are welcome.
Many people are dying of starvation and malnutrition this includes mothers, children, elders and many more
The famine has hit particularly hard regions such as Bari, Sanaag, Karkaar, Guardafui,Awdal,Sanaag, parts of Sool and Bai, Bakool, Muqadisho, kismayo and parts of
Northwestern part Somaliland.
Numerous cropland and thousands of livestock have already perished. Over 60,000 children are imminent risk of starving to death if we fail to offer urgent relief and support. The level of malnutrition, especially among children, is of serious concern.
A report by the UN in 2016 states that "close to 305,000 children under the age of five years are acutely malnourished." Food shortage and skyrocketing of prices of little food that is left has forced many people leave their homes due to the desperate situation there.
We, the Somali youth have started to raise funds to help those less fortunate than us in the drought affected areas in Somalia.
We know that you deeply care about the heritage and ellbeing of our homeland and its people we do too! And it is with this in mind that we appeal to you to help us help our brothers and sisters - that you will find it in your heart to donate a
suggested minimum donation of $50 so we may be able to help and offer assistance to those affected by
God said in the Holy Quran :
"And perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, and whatever of good (deeds that Allah loves) you send forth for yourselves before you, you shall find it with Allah. Certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what you do." - 002:110 Khan
Your kind donation will go a long way in helping desperate families affected by the famine and
have no one to turn to for help. Your in-kind donation will give those families and their children the humanitarian relief they so desperately need.
