What began as an outcast leper community eighty years ago has now grown into Korah, an urban slum with an estimated 130 000 people situated near the city garbage dump in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The community is consumed with poverty, where families are broken apart through desperation, illness, and death. OUR MISSION STATEMENT: "Loosening the yoke of extreme poverty in Korah, Ethiopia and bringing hope to those who live there." Isaiah 58:6-7 KEEPING FAMILIES HEALTHY & TOGETHER!
A recent update from Emily Cornish: Juddah has been running a fever since surgery. The doctor is supposed to see him soon. He has been restless and needs to be held all the time so please continue to pray. The surgery went well, but they will not know if it was successful or if Juddah will require a shunt, until time enough time has passed. Thanks everyone ...we'll keep you updated.
