Save 90 children from untold suffering during COVID-19
In Harar Ethiopia, Tesfa Alebachew cares for 90 children who are orphaned, abandoned or do not have anyone who is able to care for them. Tesfa, as a volunteer, provides food, shelter, care, love, protection and a family to these vulnerable children. He has developed a local model of support having mobilized volunteers, local businesses and indivduals to provide food (from hotels and restaurants), services for free (hair cuts), rent for the shelter and clothing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the closure of the hotels, restaurants and businesses in Harar and individuals have also been impacted economically because of the virus. The pandemic created significant and fast changes to Tesfa’s supporters and the country.
Tesfa needs your support now. The children need your support now to protect, feed, shelter and care for them until the economy recovers from the pandemic enough for the local model of support to start again.
Food, rent and sanitation supplies cost $5000 a month. The shelter has no staff so your donation will go a long way in making a difference.
Donations given before May 31st will be matched (up to a total maximum of $30,000) by a generous donor.
Respond today. Save 90 children from untold suffering during COVID-19 and send a message to Tesfa, a volunteer, that you value what he is doing and to the children that they are loved.
