Shoes for Kombolcha!
My friend Karen was with us in Kombolcha in December 2009, and she wrote this about these precious children and our experience:
These children were gaunt and thin. Tattered and stained clothing that covered skin stretched across bone. Eating grass when they thought we weren't looking. Some had lice, some had sores that weren't healing. All of them were hungry. All of them were longing for the reassuring, loving and protective arms of a mommy or daddy.
Every one of us went to bed that night with the question on our lips and hearts ... why? These innocent children, through no fault of their own, are left to fend for themselves. Hungry, scared, sick ... and alone, with no one in the world to love them, to soothe their fears, to stroke their forehead when they are sick and feverish, to kiss them goodnight. Why? It's so unfair.
We can make a difference in these children's lives. $34 per month ensures that a desperately poor and hungry child will have a meal every day, clothing, medical care, education and Christian discipleship.
