Paz A Somalia Benefit
Suggested Donation: $10.
Cash donation accepted at door or online: tinyurl.com/paz-somalia.

Join us for PAZ: A Somalia Project, a night of house music for a solid cause. The severe drought in Somalia is about to trigger the worst famine and most deadly conditions since WWII, with 20 million lives at stake. LA-based student and event planner Erika Garcia wanted to take action, and has partnered with Los Globos to bring you a fun night featuring local DJs, artists and food. Admission is free -- cash donations accepted at door.

With your help, we're aiming to raise at least $2,000 to provide relief to those in need. 100% of proceeds go to straight to Action Against Hunger USA, a long-standing, trusted humanitarian organization that has been workng on the front lines in the Somalia region, providing food, medical care, and access to safe water for over 20 years.

If you cannot make it to the event or live outside of Los Angeles, we encourage you to donate online whatever you can at tinyurl.com/paz-somalia. Any small amount helps!

A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR, Erika Garcia:
In addition to fundraising, we aim to bring our community together and raise awareness about the ongoing conflict in Somalia. We send our thoughts and prayers to the affected children, families, and humanitarian aid workers forced to make the dangerous journey for something so valuable and necessary to live: water. It wasn't until early March 2017 that I learned about the recent drought and the famine it has created in Somalia through a social media plead to have Turkish Airlines use one of their commercial planes to deliver over 60 tons of food. I am just a college student, navigating the obstacles of life, but wanted to contribute my part in lending a hand and utilizing a very special tool to bring people together: music.

I would like to thank you for your special contribution and express gratitude to my partners from Los Globos: Sire Dhone Johnson and Mariah Lu Harper who have opened their doors and believed in my mission from the beginning.


BRIEF HISTORY:
Since the early 1970s, Somalis have been caught in the crossfire of civil wars, government corruption, and severe droughts that have created deathly famines. Due to the current famine, millions of Somalis have been displaced from their homes and over a quarter of a million have died; half were children under five years old.

Due to political instability, Somalia is currently controlled by Al-Shabaab, an Islamist militant group. The militant group responsible for the April 2, 2015 massacre at Garissa University, that left 148 people dead and have recruited children soldiers to carry out attacks. Due to the presence of this extremist group, President Trump has added Somalia to the travel ban list. Additionally, as of April 28, 2017 U.S. officials have asked for the "geographic coordinates of aid groups working in Somalia" for possible airstrikes.
