Unfortunately, due to the Covid19, Ethiopia has declared a State of Emergency. The Covid19 restrictions imposed and the locust plague in the North and South has pillaged much of their food sources, thousands are now in a struggle for life of Death.
FAMILIES IN CHAOS
Rural Churches are not functioning. As they have no internet, there is no way for these churches to function or bring in the tithe. As a result the Pastors and Leaders have no income to feed their families.
Many women and children are in desperate need of food and water. These families use surface water and ground water for drinking, cooking and basic Hygiene. This is a problem as sanitisation and clean drinking water is non existent which leads to many health related problems.
More than 150 local missionaries and pastors who are ministering in these remote volatile areas have zero income now and are in emergency situations. Our hearts are breaking for these precious people, many of whom we know personally.
OUR PARTNERS IN ETHIOPIA
As most of you all know we have a close working relationship with Samson Weldermarium from Emmanuel Church. We have partnered with him on many crusades, bible distribution and even the building of Schools since 2012.
There is approximately 30,000 people in Emmanuel churches spread across Ethiopia.
Samson has surveyed the churches and discovered that the hardest hit areas are Eastern Wollega where they have 85 churches and Adama, Welencity and Wonjishowa areas that have 150 churches. The pastors, leaders and church members in these areas are in desperate need of aid to survive.
YOU CAN SAVE LIVES
We are partnering with Emmanuel church to literally save lives physically, so they can continue to save lives spiritually.
Two critical needs:
It requires $21 to buy food for one person for one month at least. With this amount of money, they can buy 10Kg of wheat or maize flour, 2 litre of food oil, 1 set of Pasta /Spaghetti/, 1 set of Macaroni or rice and 1kg of sugar.
Clean Water $10
A bucket with a spigot and sanitation training –that could literally mean the difference between life and death. For just $10, we can give one of these life saving systems to a family.
