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!
We love Tigist and Lemma's story and it gets even better as their community joins in to help! After Tigist received her loan and purchased a used table and chairs for their business, numbers of the young adult/teens came together along with Lemma in order to sand, paint and recover the furniture. Once done everything looked brand new! Lemma's son Henok was part of this group and later that same day, he and his friends prayed for his family and the success of their new business. Talk about working together! Next step - Moving Day!!
