We have updated our fundraising goal based on response. Our new goal is to provide soap and face masks. Thankfully, these are the most inexpensive items. To provide all 700 families with two bars of soap and five face masks we need to raise a total of $6,040. We are so close. Please help us meet this bare essential goal.
We need your help TODAY! Our partner, SHAPEthiopia, has requested emergency funding to purchase face masks, hand sanitizer, disinfecting alcohol, and soap for 700 families in their program. These basic yet life saving supplies are hard for poorer families to purchase. Your gift of $30 provides for one family of five ($6 per person). This is a rapid response fundraiser, meaning we need the funds ASAP! Prices are rising in Ethiopia and we want to get supplies ordered early next week.
COVID-19 has already made it's way to Ethiopia and their government is working diligently to stop the spread. The borders are closed, schools are closed, SHAPEthiopia's H.O.P.E. Centers are closed, and families are being strongly encouraged to stay home and practice social distancing. As of March 30, Ethiopia has 23 confirmed cases. However, we all know how fast this can spread. There is only one hospital in Ethiopia that is prepared to accept coronavirus cases and it comes at a high price. Therefore, protecting our families is essential!
