A mother of six was forced to decide today whether to leave behind her daughter, who is simply too sick to travel, in order to save the rest of her family. Suffering from malnutrition, her daughter isn't strong enough to continue with their 30-day, 50-mile journey from Somalia into neighboring Kenya.

The mother, who was so traumatized that she couldn't continue describing her ordeal or even give her name, had to leave her child by the side of the road to die.
This is the current condition of Somalia where a terrible drought has gripped the nation, which is noted as one the most largest humanitarian crisis over the last decade. Tens of thousands of people are fleeing drought and famine in Somalia in search of food and water in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia. A small donation of $14 could feed a family of 6 for ten whole days. Imagine, this would not even be the price of a pair of shoes we purchase these days.

Can't we help them? God's putting them through a testing period, but he's also testing us. He's seeing how mush humanity we still hold. Please come forward. Lets help those poor people. Every little donation counts.
