We are almost there! Help us feed 50 Ethiopian families

At the beginning of August, Vulnerable Children Society set a goal of raising $1900 to feed 50 additional families in Ethiopia, affected by the devastating Horn of Africa drought and soaring food prices.

Nearing the end of the month, we are almost there! So far, thanks to our generous supporters, we have raised $1410 dollars. Will you help us reach our goal?

The families waiting for food aid were vetted by the Wolata Women’s Office, a division of the Ethiopian government, for Vulnerable Children Society’s House 2 House program. They are very high risk families: all are extremely poor, the majority are affected by HIV/AIDS, and many are extended families that have taken in orphaned children.

Your support means these families have a chance. After recieving a bag of tef flour via our Ethiopian partner Faya Orphanage, guardians have a chance to feed their children. Food is essential not only for nutrition, but for holding off disease. Many of the children are HIV+ and on ARVs (anti-retrovirals), but the drugs only can hold back the tide of AIDS if the child is adequately nourished.

Thank you so much to all the amazingly gracious supporters who have donated so far – your generosity astounds us.
