As the conflict in Sudan continues, thousands of lives have been taken and millions of people are displaced from their homes. Among those displaced are innocent children, some of whom have been separated from their parents or guardians.
Many of these displaced Darfuian Refugees have fled to neighboring countries like Ethiopia. This is where our support begins.
Tell us about yourself?
I myself was a refugee therefore, I knew exactly how refugees are struggling. So I decided to be part of their solutions.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
I would still be part of this humanitarian work. Because so many people are invisible to Western world.
What problem does your business solve?
We focus on displaced youth who have been brave enough to make it across the border. We meet them right in the camp and provide the necessities they need. In many cases, we successfully sponsor the immigration process to permanently relocate refugees to the comforts of Canada.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
It is our mission to provide relief to refugees from the western region of Sudan known as Darfur. The region has been in a state of humanitarian crisis since 2003. The complex problems in the region have created numerous political, economic, and social problems for its civilians. Due to these issues, millions of people have been displaced and now require our help as there is no end in sight. We help this displaced population in numerous ways through fundraising and volunteer work. Using our funds we help the displaced relocate to safety and eventually help them find a permanent home.
What is your magic sauce?
Since we provide to the needy, we do not compete with other people at all. It is not for profit in other way it is NGO. We ask people to donate so that we can deliver.
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
We would like to sponsor refugees to Canada. So thay they can improve their lives and develop themselves.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
We have not received any donations because of COVID 19.
How do people get involved/buy into your vision?
By volunteering with their time, talent and ability.
