Hani Coffee Co and our team have always been about life change. We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of people through relationship and community development. You have been great partners in all we do. We desire to work together with you to see Hani people and their families experience the challenges of life with hope and expectation!
A few months ago, we were made aware of the nutritional crisis unfolding in Somalia and in the refugee camps of Kenya and Ethiopia. Although our work is focused in China, we could not turn away from the needs of so many. As we began to learn more of what is happening because of drought, wars, and climate change, it became clear that we had to make a difference.
Over the last 4 months, well over 30,000 children have died due to starvation and malnutrition related illnesses. Thousands more are sick and dying from treatable illnesses due to a lack of vaccinations, and countless people have been devastated by the lack of food and water. Many families walk for weeks in an attempt to reach the overcrowded and under supplied refugee camps along the Ethiopian and Kenyan borders of Somalia.
As our team began to hear of this unimaginable suffering, we felt a need to be a part of saving lives. Though we are a small company with limited resources, if we can bring life and hope to a few, we are all about taking that opportunity! This passion and desire has led us to support the efforts of another organization, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Over the next 3 months, every dollar we give will contribute to Doctors Without Borders relief efforts in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. Pretty amazing! We believe we can literally save the lives of children with just a few bucks!
How does it work and how can you join in?
We have created some cool new packaging that will be coming out during the holiday season. On top of our regular percentage of profits going to Hani work, we are going to give $1.00 per bag of coffee directly to the Somalia crisis relief via Doctors Without Borders. We know our profits will take a hit, but we believe the true profits of Hani Coffee Co are much more than dollars!
We are inviting you to be a part. Write us, call us, go to your favorite Hani Coffee retailer, or get online and purchase some beans and know you are making a difference literally around the world.
Look for Tim’s post with more information on our support of Doctors Without Borders relief efforts in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. I’ll be doing another post on the opportunity I had to visit one of Doctors Without Borders’ projects at a refugee camps last month during my travels to Ethiopia. And as always: Enjoy the Journey! – Craig
