Our Start.

Our first project has provided hundreds of reusable feminine hygiene kits to girls in a South Sudan school and an orphanage in Uganda. We’re now expanding our scope, working to deliver crucial medical supplies to Edna Adan’s renowned hospital in Somaliland. In April 2016, Gratis successfully delivered a shipping container of critical supplies to Edna Adan Hospital in Somaliland, while meeting with Edna to determine what work still needs to be 


Why Edna?

New York Times columnist, Nicholas D. Kristof, has written over the years about, Edna Adan and her extraordinary efforts. It was upon reading Kristof and Sheryl Wunn’s, Half The Sky – Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide that Gratis decided we needed to actually go find Edna and to see how we might be able to assist, which is precisely what we did!
