Fundraising for Ethiopian Mission

In many nations, including Ethiopia, in order to go to school, children must have tuition, books and uniforms paid for by their families. As a result, a very large percentage are unable to attend at all. This is so important in helping children and entire families who have been raised and are living in severe poverty to find the potential for a way out. Moriah Development of Ethiopian Children (MDEC)is sponsoring 100 children in the current school year that is just getting underway.

TurquoiseI’m doing a fundraising project to help the Moriah Development of Ethiopian Children ministry to street boys in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. They are selling Ethiopian scarves at a cost of $25 each to raise money that will assist with education, housing and food costs for the children in their program.

The children are helped in several ways:

  • Live in two homes operated by MDEC,
  • Receive various forms of education and training as well as weekday breakfasts while still living on the streets,
  • Receive assistance to attend school.

If you are interested in any of the scarves seen here, or others, please e-mail me. I have a variety of colors of the scrunchy scarves and several colors of some Assortmentof the others not shown. Most, other than the ones in the style of the one made into a belt in the attached photo, are a gauze type of material. As you can see, you can be creative with how they might be worn.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to MDEC, but due to the international transfer of funds when it comes time to do that, it will be best to pay me directly with MDEC written in the comment line of the check. I can send you an acknowledgement of receipt.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the scarves, this ministry, or whatever else may come to mind regarding this project. Let’s lift these boys and the leaders of this ministry up in whatever way we can. Buy a scarf…say a prayer…send an e-mail of support.
