Please take a few minutes to watch this video my friend posted today, in honor of her daughter’s birthday HERE
If the video gave you all the feels like it did me, you’re probably looking for tissues and wondering how you can go help the babies that are all lined up – not even an inch between each “crib” with no view of the outside – and the people in the village.
When you come back after getting tissues, here are ways you can help without having to take a week off of work, getting tons of shots and taking a very long plane ride:
The number one reason they have such an orphan crisis in Ethiopia is because they have no clean water. Dirty water causes diseases and death. for this reason, we have been supporting Charity Water. They have already helped with the fundraising to build 2 new water wells in Ethiopia.
You can read on the website the wonderful things that the organization is doing and 100% of the money raised goes to water.
Find out more about how water is so vital and rare in so many other areas here.
There is also a lot of kids waiting to be sponsored to go to school. Amber visited Compassion International as seen in the video you watched. She sponsors 3 kids (one for each of our small children)
Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.
Your support provides:
- Medical checkups, which often save lives
- Nutritious food
- Health and hygiene training
- Educational assistance
- Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
- Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
- Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God.
Sponsor a child here.
And if you would like more information on how you can go overseas and help, send me an email and I will keep you informed as I get more information. My email is Nicole@NicoleRE.com.
Off to get more tissues…
