Why Ethiopia?

 

Confirmation Content

To this day, Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. More than one quarter of the population lives below the poverty line, roughly 1 in 5 children die before the age of 5 and only 39% of the population is literate. While the economy is fast developing, the poorest and most marginalised are being left behind.

We need your help to break this cycle of poverty and bring back health and hope to those who are most in need.
