Brief Update:

THANKS to all of our 285 supporters who joined our global network of support. Keep it going and growing! http://goto.gg/8478

New Partnerships Thanks to Deeq M. Afrika, we have a new partnership with Aspire2Lead in Canada. They recently wrote an article in Sway Magazine “The Face of Famine in Somalia”  http://swaymag.ca/2011/07/the-face-of-famine-in-somalia/

News article in VOA (Voice of America): We are thankful that they talked about Dadaab and our work in “Youth group Fills Gap of Response For Somali Refugees”. You can read it at http://tinyurl.com/3tu8fuz

Currently preparing for next trip to Dadaab Refugee Camp and Liboi, on the Kenyan border with Somalia.  We are seeking additional funds for transport and volunteers expenses.  We want to use all the Survival Backpacks donations to buy backpacks.  More donations means more backpacks.

Help us get the word out.  Follow us on twitter at Dadaab_Response, on Facebook at Global Somali Emergency Response and our blog at globalsomaliresponse.wordpress.com. 

Share the Survival Backpacks video on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QR_1G1yOEbA  Dadaab: Get There or Die Trying (shown on alJazeera The Stream and on Dutch TV)

Thanks for all you do.
