Hello Ethiohealthcare family. As you may know me; I am Seble Lemma besides my jobs I am also a volunteer bringing together initiations to help reach the unreached. I work on community projects in Africa and part of it is focused on giving hope to others that are most vulnerable to the economic changes and life challenges. I believe together we can to be able help one another and not solely depend on international aid alone. Based on our Ethiopian culture of care and love to one another we can give hope and remind others that they are not alone in this journey called life. Thus, we try to cover certain basic things that will fill up at least few basic life necessary things in the needs of others. I am organizing a continued effort to the visits to local community . The past year many organizations have made multiple efforts and we all continue to do so.
According to action against hunger “Owing to instability in bordering countries, particularly South Sudan, Ethiopia remains one of Africa’s leading host country for refugees.
Violence that erupted in 2017 on the border between the Oromia and Somali regions continued in 2018, with serious consequences: the number of internally displaced people as a result of the conflict has reached 1.8 million. In addition, Ethiopia hosts nearly 900,000 refugees from countries including South Sudan and Somalia.
The action against hunger also indicates that the country suffers from recurring climate shocks. Food insecurity and displacements caused by drought, epidemics, floods and other shocks continue to increase humanitarian needs among the most vulnerable populations. In 2018, about 7.8 million people received emergency food assistance from the government and international NGOs.”
And I believe it’s time we all take our individual roles to help one another supplement to the efforts that are being done in parallel.
The picture is added was taken from the my last visit to Addis Ababa on July 19, 2019. Such initiation was done for the third round and this image is added to illustrate and give a visual to you what I do. With the next upcoming visit I would like to add more buckets, more items in the buckets and reach more people in the community.
At this point I come to you as my resources are always numbered. This is why I am looking for your support to help address the basic needs of nutrition, health & wellbeing.
for the community.
The raised money will be used for purchasing buckets to be filled with hope like “buckets of hope” ( tesfa mestet : ተስፋ መስጠት) with (cooking oil, Shiro powder, teff, lentil, onions, basic clothing, health information sheet etc.) needed for their basic wellbeing and health prevention.
What is the advantage of the event?
Children and adolescents will have basic nutritious meal ingredients and basic clothing. They will feel loved and cared by your effort and contribution.
The community will feel a sense hope and reassured that they are not alone and you and me do care about them.
And last but not least, I will share the experiences with you through articles and possibly via medias such as the website of my company and the official Facebook and Instagram page.
Thank you in advance for any support you can give.
