    Feeding the youngest among us

    Day 365

    Formulating a Solution

    Welcome to Hargeisa! We’re back in Somalia, working with our team here to do the doable.

    Even though we don’t have traditional programming in the city of Hargeisa itself, we have an engaged staff with big hearts and commitments to their community. One of the groups they’re most committed to is an orphanage in the city, which helps house and school over 400 children up to 21 years old.

    There are lots of kids, so the orphanage has diverse needs. But some essentials, like milk and formula, are always in demand! Many of the children are under the age of one, with the youngest being just a few weeks old. This means they’re constantly resupplying their milk and formula reserves to ensure there’s enough to go around.

    So, we decided to help make sure they had enough of a supply for the next few months! Now, each child will have access to the milk or formula most appropriate for their age.

    One woman working at the Orphanage, Annab, told us, “people say only the rich can afford this milk, so you’ve really brought us the best there is.”

    We were touched by this and so glad to see we could support the most vulnerable children at the orphanage.
