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!
I hope you will find a few free minutes to check out this compelling (4 min) youtube video taken at the trash dump in Korah. It will give you a sense of the injustice and poverty that this community experiences and the beautiful people who live here. Each one IS IMPORTANT.
I know God's heart is for Korah! Alleviating extreme poverty is a huge and overwhelming global problem, but Our GOD IS BIGGER and I believe in Him; we can make a difference… one person at a time!
