Somalia Awareness

somalia yuns mohammed.jpgOn Oct. 12, Geography Professor Kwasi Boadi raised awareness on famine and drought in Somalia in a Student Center Theatre presentation titled "Impact the World." Boadi provided a comprehensive overview of the situation in Somalia, and then focused on connections between the geographical features of Somalia and the effect they have on the country's food crisis. The Africa Club of Eastern (ACE) sponsored Boadi's lecture. After the presentation, ACE collected donations to send to the American Red Cross. For more information about Africa Club events, contact ACE at africanclub@my.easternct.edu. Above, the audience listens as Yuns Mohammed discusses the conditions his family is facing in Somalia.
