Our children will continue to receive food support from their sponsorship funds, but their families will go hungry without intervention from BCI. There is no government aid available and there are many mouths to feed. $90 USD will support one family until August 2020.
Schools in Ethiopia are shuttered as a result of the pandemic. Due to the intense vulnerability of our children, a disruption in their education is devastating. We must do what we can. We need to provide each family with a tablet to facilitate virtual learning. You can help!

Below are the faces of the children identified by our social workers as having the most critical needs during the pandemic crisis.
My mother abandoned me when I was a baby. A kind old woman rescued me from the streets. I love her as a mother. Now she is hungry because there is no work.
My father abandoned me and I cry a lot because I want to have delicious food like other children. I pray every day that God will give me some food, because I love Him.
“My grandmother, young sister and cousin are completely dependent on me. Sometimes I cry at night about our situation. We are just waiting for God’s miracle in our home.”
"My mother is getting sick with stress and doesn’t sleep at night because she is worrying about what to do for the future. I am sleeping the whole day because I am becoming more depressed."
"We would have nothing to eat if BCI didn't give us food. Everyone in our home is worrying about the future."
