Many children in Ethiopia live in unacceptable conditions. They suffer from hunger, or are sick. Some of them have lost their parents due to diseases or accidents.
About 150 children up to the age of 17 have found a new home in our Abdii Borii orphanage (translated “Hope for a better tomorrow”) in the small town of Mettu. In many cases these are children who were abandoned at hospitals, public authorities or private houses. Frequently the home takes in children whose parents have died or who are unable to care for them due to chronic illness. Most of them suffer from hunger, malnutrition and other diseases attributable to a lack of hygiene.
To date 353 orphans and half-orphans have found a loving home here. At Abdii Borii they have an opportunity to prepare themselves for an independent future.
