Episode Twenty-Seven

Giving and Acting from Anywhere With Mona Gulaid

“We were local professionals who had day jobs, not members of [an] organization or a foundation or a charity. We just decided to come together and do something.”

Judithe is joined by her long-time friend, Mona Gulaid, to discuss Mona's travels and life and her journey to mobilize support and raise awareness for the drought in Somalia. Mona is a Somali-born British woman currently based in Dubai. She is currently the lead on the Dubai Acts 4 campaign "Every Dirham Counts," in partnership with Emirates Red Crescent, to support the drought relief in Somalia.

In this episode, Mona gives us a roadmap for taking direct action to better the lives of our fellow human beings and bring the world closer to the one we imagine. She shows us that we do not have to wait for opportunities to advance the causes we care about-- we can create our own opportunities from anywhere, at any time.
