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!

You are Invited! Meet & Greet with Berhanu & Emily
We have the unexpected privilege of having Berhanu and Emily here!
We hope you will join us to welcome them
to the U.S./Canada border town of Lynden, WA.
This is as close to Canada as we could get them without a visa!
Berhanu Tenker grew up at the garbage dump in Korah. God has worked miracles in his life! He is now the Director of Health & Family with Great Hope Charities, our partnering agent on the ground in Korah and he helps to oversee many of our Hope for Korah programs. We are so excited that both he and his wife Emily, a nurse with Project 61, will be here to meet with us, share their story and how God is using them on the ground in Korah.
