Ethiopia

Colin and Ellen Jackson spent two years working with VSO in Debre Birhan, Ethiopia. They formed a link with Addis Kidan Baptist Church while they were there. On their return the church at Woodbridge decided to sponsor 30 needy children through the Addis Kidan church.

The last gift from the church (December 2017) was of money collected as part of our "pennies for Ethiopia" appeal and was a Christmas present for the families. Dereje was very grateful for our fellowship's kindness. The money was used to purchase grain for making bread and blankets. Here is a photo of the distribution of grain to the families we support.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Below you can see pictures of the sheets and blankets that were bought for the families that we support in Debre Birhan, Ethiopia.

It may seem strange that we should be buying these items but because Debre Birhan sits at approximately 9600ft above sea level, at this time of year the nights can be pretty cold. It was -5C when the Jacksons were living there.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.
