Stories of Hope


Fistula Victim

Abeba lives in a remote village that’s a 10 hour drive and 2 hour walk from the nearest medical care. She had a difficult labor and not only lost her baby during birth, but also tore her birth canal. While she physically survived, she could no longer control her urine and was forced to live in isolation as so many other victims do. This isn’t life as they simply count the days waiting for their misery to end. But, we found Abeba and were able to coordinate the corrective surgery for her. After a month, she recovered fully and was discharged with a smile as you can see in the picture. Read more about fistula >>

Almaz & Family

Helping the Destitute

Almaz, Hiyab, Caleb & Samuel lost both of their parents to AIDS in a span of 2 months. Almaz the oldest was in 10th grade. Their lives were shattered with no income for food and other basic necessities. When the Social Affairs government department heard about their plight, we were contacted to help. We began providing a monthly sponsorship to preserve such an orphan led family for the past 7 years. They continued with their schooling. Almaz graduated from the university with honors in accounting in July 2013. She has found a good paying job. Hiyab is a second year already outstanding engineering student and the two boys are in high school.

Without the timely intervention what a sad story it would have been and what a talent would have been wasted. Your partnership makes a big difference in the lives of children that through no fault of their own find themselves in extremely adverse circumstances. Read more about the destitute >>
