It's Bonus Day for our Project in Somalia!

Want your donation dollars to have the greatest possible impact?

On June 13, starting at 12:01 am EST, GlobalGiving is sponsoring a special “Bonus Day,” where every donation you make to MADRE and Womankind Kenya’s “Help Families Fleeing Famine in Somalia” project will be matched by 50 percent—greatly increasing the impact of your generous donations!

In northeastern Kenya, Somali families fleeing famine and war have settled in communities that are themselves facing face severe drought and hunger. MADRE is working with our partner Womankind Kenya to respond to the crisis by providing families with urgent aid—including calorie-dense, nutritious food, emergency water supplies, health kits with medicines to fight diarrhea and infections, and oral rehydration salts.

Your support of this project will enable us to continue our crucial work with Womankind Kenya. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to make your donation go even further, and donate today!
