NORWICH – The Shepherd’s Gift Foundation, the charitable arm of Chobani, is pledging $1 million to the Global Enrichment Foundation to support their famine relief efforts in Somalia. The United Nations has described the famine in Somalia as the “worst humanitarian disaster” in the world, with an estimated four million Somalis – over half of the country’s population – in need of aid.
Through their Convoy for Hope initiative, the Global Enrichment Foundation provides much needed food to individuals in route to Kenyan refugee camps. To date, they have delivered food-aid to over 39,000 Somalia people. With Chobani’s $1 million pledge, these Convoys will provide at least another 250,000 people with life-saving food aid during this critical time.
