In 2015 because of the global el nino selected areas of Ethiopia received late rains disturbing the natural balance of crop planting and harvesting. Some areas were able to compensate for the tardiness of the rains. In Tselemti they have had little to no rain. The children unless helped soon will drop out of school simply because they do not have the energy to attend any more. The regional government has asked us to help one area named Fyel Wuha (Goat Water). There is a population of five thousand eight hundred (5,800) of which one thousand seven hundred (1,700) are students. Abraham’s Oasis will work with the Parent Teacher Association to monitor the correct distribution of supplies to the concerned children for the next five months.
On March 14 we started a Global giving challenge to raise $4000 in two weeks to fund this famine relief effort. Please follow the link below to GlobalGiving.com and help us meet this challenge.
