thanks Muhler for your translations.
I agree with you tht Mary might react in quite a strongly emotive way, especially gven that she is a mother herself and that she will feel all the more so the sharp contast between the refugees babies' condition and her own children.
I do hope the DF greymen will help her to cope in the right way.

Thanks Muhler for your reply.
Any amount of money raised is a success especially when help is so badly needed.
BT has another article and I think it reads that after Mary's segement was on, the amount increased.
Muhler, if possible could you please tell if this is what the article said. Thanks.

This one? Begejstret Pind: Mary er en stjerne! - Royale - BT.dk

Yes, according to the article the organisers had expected 50 million DKK and hoped for 70 million DKK.
After Mary had been on air additional 40 million DKK were raised. The total reached 110 million DKK. - So yes, she had an effect.
(5 DKK = 1 $, 7.6 DKK = 1 €).

The interview took place at Hotel Sheraton Adis (in Ethiopia) and Mary was very nervous before going live for the interview.
The Minister for Development, Søren Pind, said afterwards: "My, she's good. She's a star"!

The visit continues today and Mary and the delegation will visit acricultural projects in villages. - That can be something as simple, but still crucial, like a windmill powered waterpump, a windmill to power the village TV set or a toilet with proper sanitation. - Simple technology the villagers can maintain themselves.

Mary and the delegation will return home tonight.

(Søren Pind is one of the few politicians I like. He is unorthodoks and a bit of a maverick. Half the time I roll my eyes way back in the head, when he says something, the rest of the time he makes a lot of sense. He is pragmatic and often say things as they are like or not. Like: Sure, he is going to use all the fringe benefits he can get his hands on as a politician. Why not? Everybody else in his situation would. - That at least is honest, I think.
Or when he stated that a certain percentage of the money going to aide will never reached those in need. They will be lost to corruption. Accept it. That's the conditions the relief organisations have to work under.)

Many thanks Muhler, that is the one.

Mary's visit did exactly what was hoped for. This must have made those involved extremly happy. I am so pleased that this vist was much appreciated

Even though it was quite a short trip, it did seem quite effective and they did raise a good amount of money after Mary's interview.
I read somewhere that they will be visiting archeological site before their return to Denmark.

She's not actually in Somalia. She's in Ethiopia and Kenya ... she didn't go to Somalia - too dangerous!

Can I inspire a bit of positive rivalry? Australia has donated $200 million, as has Turkey... does anyone know how much the Government of Denmark has donated to Somalia?

Yes

Så er Danmark oppe på en kvart milliard til ofrene på Afrikas Horn | U-landsnyt.dk

250 DKK = $50 million = $8,9 pr. person i Denmark comparede to $ 8,7 pr. person i Australian and $2,7 pr. person i Turkey.

Anyway Mary is a great Crown Princess

Mary's appearance on the telethon was held till the third hour of the broadcast. After her interview 40 million more kroner was donated. That's quite an effect.

Mary may have been tired and affected by the day's experiences, but her demeanor during the interview was calm and her remarks were too cogent and collected to be spoken by someone who was nervous. If anything, what she displayed at the beginning of the interview was anticipation of her cue and adjusting to the obvious delay in the transmission between Denmark and Ethiopia.

Thank you again for the translations, Muhler. Mary comes across as a very compassionate, genuine and determined individual, just the kind that is needed to work with such a cause. I'm glad that she'll be able to help. Her efforts will undoubtably be appreciated.

Mary looks like she had a day to interact with the people which is really nice to see.

I see you gallery, Dazzling

And raise you a clip from BT, where Mary, obviously rested, is talking about her experiences in Ethiopia. - We are listening to the "normal" Mary, where her accent is much less distinct and where she is speaking a much more correct Danish.
- BT TV - BT.dk

And I add a review from BT's royal reporter, of how she viewed Mary's performance at the fundraiser yesterday. Mary is praised to the sky!
I fact I'm in complete agreement with what the journalist is saying:
Bevæget Mary var klar i mælet - Royale - BT.dk

Unfortunately I'm a little too preoccupied right now to write a summary or translate the interview.

- I wonder if there is an international rule saying that security police officers must dress as neatly as possible?
Notice the two local gentlemen standing close to Mary in the pics from Ethiopia, pretending not to be there. Just like the PET officers at home, they are the most well dressed gentlemen present.
In contrast to the casually dressed FET agents. (I guess appearance is less important to special forces).

Mary's trip was featured in a short clip here in Australia on 7 Sunrise (morning news) so it shows the power of Mary going over say Frederik or Joachim.
Even though the drought and the horrible consequences are known here in Australia and across the world, Mary being there gives it at least a bit more prominent airtime than it would otherwise get. So good on her for raising the issue on an international stage.

Wearing sunglasses while nobody else does and when speaking to people is so out of place and I wonder what the PM was up to, doing some stretching excercises?

Nevertheless, Mary was a good public face to take part in the campaign and raise awareness.

That's a relief. I thought Somalia was really too dangerous...
