2015 was a good year for Ethiopiaid thanks to YOU!
Thank you for believing in the work we do and for supporting the lives of thousands of Ethiopians.
2015 was a busy year for Ethiopiaid, as we continued the amazing work that you enable us to do. During 2015 you helped us to work closely with 6 partners in Ethiopia and the results were amazing:
At AWSAD, over 419 women and their children were provided a safe house, counselling, medical services and legal aid.
At FSCE, 28 girls attended a safe house where they received skills training, education and a safe environment.
At Facing Africa, you helped to fund 2 surgical missions to
Ethiopia where over 70 operations were performed on NOMA victims.
At Cheshire Services, the lives of 4,940 adults and children living with disabilities were improved.
At Hope Enterprises, you helped feed 850 street children every day and helped to get 450 of them into school.
At the Hamlin Fistula Hospital & Hamlin College of Midwives, more than 1200 babies were safely delivered.
I want to draw your attention to Hamlin Fistula Hospital in particular. 2015 was a year where the hospital had a greater impact than ever before, and we were delighted to host Martin Andrews, Hamlin CEO, for our September art exhibition in Dublin. The show was attended by Sabina Higgins and RTE’s Claire Byrne, and was a tremendous success that helped raise much needed funds for the hospital in its effort to end fistula in Ethiopia by 2020.
Remember with us the joy of that day:
