The Mosaic Company and the American Refugee Committee (ARC) announced today a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $100,000 towards famine relief efforts in Somalia. The Minneapolis-based Mosaic Company is committing a matching grant for all donations made through GiveMN.org and will cover all credit card transaction fees to maximize the effectiveness of all donations.

Minnesota is home to the country’s largest Somali population, and Minneapolis-based ARC has partnered with the Somali community to coordinate efforts to battle the famine in Somalia; the first declared famine in 20 years.

“By making this generous gift, Minnesotans can join Mosaic in the fight against famine in Somalia, stand with our local Somali community and demonstrate the spirit and generosity of Minnesota,” said ARC President Daniel Wordsworth in a statement. “This donation will help the people of Somalia for whom each day is a struggle to survive.”
