Rainy Season Fundraiser

THIS FUNDRAISER HAS ENDED! We are so thankful for the $2,000 that was donated!

The rainy season in Ethiopia starts around the 2nd week of June. It'll last for 2 months. Two long months. Some of the families living in Korah only have blankets draped over wood for protection. That is their home. Their only protection from the rain and cold. I honestly can't explain it as well as the pictures do. Take some time to look at the pictures below...

Can you imagine? These blankets are going to get wet and start leaking into their homes. That means their dirt floors will be mud. They will be cold and more susceptible to sickness. Breaks. My. Heart.

Addis Ababa is 7,500 feet above sea level. It gets in the low 50s at night.  I was there during the rainy season in 2009 and I was chilly the whole time. Keep in mind I was staying in a nice hotel.

These families need more things for the rainy season. More things they can't afford. This fact has been on my heart since we started this ministry.

Here are the things they need more of:

Charcoal~ $15 for a large bag
Plastic~ $8-10 each
Coffee~ $5-6 for 2 pounds

They also need nice blankets to keep warm. Those are $20-25 each.

If you would like to help A Heart For Korah get these supplies in Ethiopia, please click on the donate button on the right side of our blog. 100% of the money raised will go directly to Ethiopia. A donation of any amount is welcomed and appreciated!
