I was born and raised in Nekemte, Wollega, with Mr. Umeta and we
went to the same elementary school. We played in the soccer field
just a block away where the kids reside in Nekemte, without dreaming
of taking responsibility for the younger generation supposed to play
in the same soccer field. Unfortunately they are not as lucky to be
happy and enjoy the soccer field like we did.
Just few years ago when Mr. Umeta told me his thoughts of doing something for unfortunate orphan kids, I said he is the right man to take on the challenge. God bless him for his work.
A group of people from Zion Evangelical Church in the Twin Cities made a trip to Ethiopia. They know of our home, and so made a visit to see the staff and children. Here's a picture of their group with our kids.
Berhane took a trip to Ethiopia. During his visit, he spent an unforgetable time with the children. Here's a picture of Berhane with a group of our kids.
