Dear Sponsor, hoping you’re all keeping safe and well
We wanted to give you the very latest news from our partner CBISDO, who run the project that looks after your sponsored child in Addis Ababa. This communication has arrived from the Manager this week:
Currently things are not good here in Addis Ababa. People are horrified by corona virus or covid-19.The government has closed university, high schools, elementary schools,and kindergarten.And also some governmental organisations have been closed. So far, it is about 44 people have been positive in covid-19, two person died.
In the project itself, Provision of food services has stopped due to corona virus. Some students have come and take way their food. We have distributed sanitation material to their parents. And also government organisations have planned to support us in kind support.
We are keeping in direct touch with our partners and through our consultant based in Addis who visits the project regularly on our behalf. That way, we will be able to keep you updated as they work through the immense challenges they face plus let you know of any other ways that we can help them during these unprecedented times.
We give thanks for our loyal sponsors always but especially at this toughest of times that is impacting us all.
And please join us in praying for all our sponsored children, their families, those working in CBISDO for their health and protection.
Paul, Ben and Simon
