Andrea Hawkes: Prayers for Somalia

I, like so many, think about the famine in Somalia every day.  Donations, while important, just don’t seem enough against what seem to be insurmountable odds.  A prayer flag – can it really make a difference?  Well, I don’t know for sure, but I know that my heart is in this one (as in all of them) and while I may not be a very good artist, this flag seemed to come from somewhere through my hands and, for me at least, has meaning.  Inspiration, intuition – it seems to happen without thought or intention.  May the winds that take prayer flags take hope, love, rain, growth, food and change to Somalia .




  1. Beautiful flag for such a tragic situation!!! I am sending prayers along with yours!!!

  2. wonderful. You've inspired me to make one for Africa's starving people too......
