According to the House 2 House program director Sintayehu Habtemariam, 66 families received bags of tef. These families included a minimum of 275 children.
Additionally, 45 students received school materials to start the year off right, and 30 of those students also received some food.
The pictures that follow show people recieving food aid in one area and children with their school materials another area. The lineups went into the evening, but the distribution was calm and organized.
Sintayehu commented on how surprised and grateful the families were: “Everybody was happy. Public media also received the documents. We thank you for everything you did for these children.”
Than you so much to our wonderful donors who made this drought relief work possible. We are truly grateful.
