WE ARE ON OUR WAY TO #SOMALIA 🇸🇴!!!
It is crazy to think 10 days ago this was still just an idea.
We want to take all of you on this journey with us. For you to see the fruits of your work.
The cargo flight full of PlumpyNut (emergency food for malnourished baby) is rescheduled in a couple days
To not waste any time, we've decided to come and take you with us to Somalia !! We are teaming up with a local NGO there with whom we are going to be able to buy 60 tons of food locally and distribute it right away while waiting for the cargo flight!
We also have scheduled the delivery of 90,000 liters of water as a start. In water trucks. We negotiated a really good price at 0.013 cents per liter.
It may seem like a lot of water but we can assure you it is a tiny tiny drop compared to the needs there.
We are excited to send you all soon updates directly from Somalia. Our hope is this trip will also help you put a name and a face on those people that you are all helping.
We are thankful for all your support and we will try to keep all 83,900 of you in our heart during the entire trip.
PS: our flights were offered by #TurkishAirlines and our hotel/food/all expense there will be covered directly from our pocket. Like we promised 100% of the money raised will be spent on food & water solutions.
PS2: Truely appreciate everyone sending ideas and past experiences in the "humanitarian" field. We are trying to read as many tweets/comments as we can to hear all of your inputs. If we keep co-creating together, we will bring solutions in a way never done in the past!
PS3: some of you have expressed concern for our safety in Somalia, please know that we are being very mindful and also that the storyline of #Africa being a dangerous place is a deformed story based on fear, we won't let it affect our mission. We have our hearts full of your energy and we will keep advancing in Love.
Sending light back to all of you Love Army Generals.
PS4: we've been listening to this song called LOVE ARMY the entire flight! Maybe you guys will like it as much as we do... :)
