Thousands of Somalis have been fleeing the country each week in search of food, water and shelter. The lucky may find their way to refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia. However, even with these refugee camps nearly half a million children are at risk of dying from malnutrition and disease.
helpsomalia hopes to raise funds to help provide relief organizations with funds via a fandom charity auction, much like help_japan, helpthesouth, and other similar communities.
