The Staff and Teachers at the two Adams Thermal Academies in Ethiopia are continuing to compile and distribute lesson plans as well as food rations, when possible, to the families of the most food insecure students. The initial plan was to provide two weeks of food at a time, but with no end to the lockdown in sight, and in an effort to minimize contact, the rations have been increased to a 30 day supply.

The food distributions are moving ahead as planned in the Hosanna area, however an extended rainy season is causing travel difficulties in getting to the families in the rural, mountainous Ottoro area. At last report, the rainy season has lasted 30 days longer than normal, and rendered roadways impassable even with four wheel drive vehicles. The only way to get the supplies to the Ottoro area is on foot, horse or donkey, and given the seriousness and urgency of the situation, the team is planning to make the deliveries using beasts of burden to carry the load.

Please join us in prayer for and support for students in Ethiopia as they weather this crisis with the resources available to them and what we are able to provide.
