So far 1,350 face masks, 180 gloves for teachers and 150 liter hand sanitizer were delivered to several schools in the South Omo Zone. Hamer, Ari, Dassanech and Mursi are some of the tribes benefiting from the Coronavirus relief supplies we provided.

The choices of face masks
There is still much help needed - not only to help to slow down Coronavirus transmission, but also to help local schools with school books, other educational material, awareness of harmful traditional practices (mingi, Female Genital Mutilation: FGM, child marriages, etc.) and to support children from poor families with school materials.
Here are different options listed how you can help!
You can also sponsor a child, changing her life forever, by providing food, clothes, school material, education and a safe place to grow up in a multi-cultural environment. Check out some of our currently unsponsored children here! It’s a great Christmas gift.
