” March 2003: In the middle of dry bushland, we reached this waterhole! It was something of a miracle! The locals in this very dry and war-torn part of Somalia were shocked to see someone like me appear from the dusty pickup truck! This was a journey which I will never forget, a whole day driving across Somalia’s dry/dusty lands with four heavily armed gunmen riding on the top of the pickup truck! We stopped for tea( usually the tea had about eight spoons of sugar ) in a couple of places, and the locals were just amazing! This young boy was very shy, and I eventually got a hug and a smile from him.
Due to the ongoing civil war, no foreign aid workers are able to enter this region. However, when it is safe to do so, Khalsa Aid will once again return to this area and offer aid to the many people who have suffered in the conflict.
The time has flown by, and Khalsa Aid is going strength to strength……all because of your belief and support. Thank you.”
Ravi Singh, CEO – Khalsa Aid
