Greetings from northern Kenya, near the border with Somalia!

On their last trip, the Survival Backpacks/Global Somali Response team found the situation had changed at Dhobley inside Somalia. Because of conflict, they were unable to return to Dhobley on this trip.

Therefore the Survival Backpacks/Global Somali Response team changed their plans and found a group of Somalis inside Kenya at a place called Daffur, that had no supplies. The 320 people, men, women, and children were not receiving help from any organization and were in severe need.

One Somali explained, " We have lost everything, all our cattle. We came here hoping life could be better".

Thanks for all you do!
