On our return to Ethiopia we were pleasantly surprised to find that various children had found new sponsor parents. We currently have 53 sponsored children and there is just one new little girl who needs sponsoring (and we are awaiting confirmation of another) This little girl is called Tigist Getemew, she is 2 years old and she attends the melons class. She didn’t have a father and a few days ago she lost her mother so her neighbours Birtukan and Mesfin have been looking after her since her parents died. Mesfin works as a security guard and only earns 300 birrs a month to maintain his 6 children and two other orphans, one being Tigist. We heard about this case and we’ve decided to include her in the list of sponsorships. Her substitute family – who has shown great generosity in taking on two more mouths to feed – deserves the support.
If you would like to sponsor Tigist please write to mediterranea.ong@gmail.com
