We are recruiting a team of caring folks who stand ready to help us meet the urgent needs of our AM 1:27 sponsored families – either by helping financially themselves or by rallying the support of friends and family. This is our Emergency Response Team!
What kinds of needs arise?
Families in Ethiopia can face medical or housing emergencies or have needs related to man-made or natural disasters that they are simply unable to pay for… so the ER Team embraces these women and children by providing the essentials with their financial gifts.
How will the team be alerted?
Here is our first ER Team notification…
We just received word from our case manager in Dembidollo that a tragedy has hit Gezworke, a single mother of two girls. She was cooking dinner in her home over a charcoal fire when something ignited and within minutes her entire house was burned to the ground. It’s not hard to understand how this could easily happen as her house is made of sticks and the roof is made of thatch (straw).
