"Let the Heavenly God think of you as you think of us in our Easter. Let our God protect you from this pandemic disease and from other dangers. Thank you, and even if we don't know all of you by your name, we hope our prayer would get to all of you." Recent Food Distribution Recipient
COVID-19 has forced much of the world into a lock-down situation, including Ethiopia and the two Adams Thermal Academy schools in Hosanna and Ottoro. Photo-copied lesson plans and worksheets are being distributed to all students to continue the school year in a crude distance learning environment.
Being enrolled at the Adams Thermal Academies provides an education and a path out of poverty in the long run. But the schools also provide much needed meals to the students each day, which they're going without during this lock-down. In response, Adams Thermal Foundation working through the staff at both schools is distributing food rations to the students in an effort to provide nutrition and avoid critical food insecurity. Students at the two schools are receiving corn flour, vegetable oil, rice, and macaroni, as well as soap and masks to help mitigate the pandemic threat.
Currently, students are reporting to the school according to their grade in order to maintain social distancing and to receive their supplies for a cost of about $20 US dollars per student per month. Due to uncertainty of the duration of the pandemic, no end date is planned at this time. The cost of the program is over $18,000 per month and with no end in sight, we are asking for your prayerful support. If your situation allows, your financial gift would be greatly appreciated at this time. Each $20 you are able to donate will provide food relief and pandemic protection for one student for a full month. Just click the Donate button at the top of the page to get started.
Beneficiaries have been very grateful for the support during this difficult time. Thank you and stay safe!
