Aurora, OntarioOn Friday, September 23, Stock Transportation presented the Canadian Red Cross a cheque for $3,313.68 towards their Horn of Africa Appeal project. In an effort to assist with the humanitarian crisis in Somalia, Stock Transportation, a leading provider of student transportation, conducted a fundraising drive to benefit the people affected by the country’s devastating drought and famine. 

According to the United Nations, Somalia has the highest malnutrition rates in the world, reaching 50 percent in some areas. Nearly half of the Somali population, 3.7 million people, are in crisis, with deaths among children under five years old reaching six per 10,000 a day in certain regions. 
 
Lul Mohammad, a Stock Transportation driver for over ten years, felt a special connection to this tragedy having been born in Mogadishu, Somalia. Lul left the country twenty-three years ago and came to Canada in search of freedom and safety for her family. Recently, Lul raised awareness about the situation in Somolia among her fellow drivers and asked if the company could help. Through the efforts of Stock’s Toronto locations, the fundraising drive was a huge success, raising over $3,300 for Lul's home country.
 
“We want to live our company value of community and help make the world a safer place for children and families,” said Kim Worster, vice president of Canadian operations. “We are asking for the support of our people to help those in need, and are proud to be a part of a great cause.”
