ABOUT THIS PROJECT

As US Special Operations soldiers continue to work hand in hand with their Somali partners to defeat the al Qaida-aligned terrorist organization al Shabaab (AS), Somalia remains an area of active armed conflict. This extremist group specifically targets civilians, forcing these innocent bystanders to bear the brunt of their malign presence. As with many struggling and impoverished areas, health care is one of the most dire needs for the population. The inability to treat illness and adequately respond to disease can cripple children for life and inhibit families from earning an income, perpetuating the cycle of malnourishment and despair.

The true victims of this conflict, Somali families gather outside their improvised shelter.

To address the lack of health services in a rural village, US SEALs and their partners have planned an event to provide medical care to over 3,000 sick and injured Somalis. This medical attention will not only impact those directly receiving treatment, but will also improve their family’s economic standing and develop the ability of the community to resist al Shabaab’s influence. The friendships built and trust earned through events like this swing support in favor of the Federal Government of Somalia and their US partners in the eyes of the local Somali population.

To make this lifesaving event a reality, financial support is needed. Your generous support will further the efforts of our troops on the ground who identified these needs and help build lasting and invaluable partnerships. With your help, an entire community currently devoid of medical attention will have lifesaving medical care, ultimately bolstering the peace efforts across East Africa.

100% of your gift will be used to purchase what is needed for this project. Donations in excess of the project's needs will be offered a refund.
