Berhanu Tenker grew up in extreme poverty, surviving at the garbage dump in Korah and he is now the Family Sponsorship & Health Coordinator overseeing the Hope for Korah programs in Ethiopia. His wife Emily has been serving in Korah as a nurse for two years.
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!
