We visited Lalibela Ethiopia this summer, a UNESCO World Heritage Center that is a mountain top village known for its stone carved churches . There are so many poor people and orphans. Students at the local schools go in shifts and the class size is 50. Many children carry wood, shine shoes, or help tourists with baggage so they have money to buy a couple meals a day, which is nothing more than bread or pancakes made of teff. Homes are made of sticks and mud or manure. They have no electricity and cooking is done over a fire. Our guide for the day, Happy, wants to do more for the orphans of the village but needs a vehicle. With a vehicle he will be able to take tourists to the amazing rock churches and vows to give back 35% of his income to feed and help orphans. An orphan himself, he lost his dad to a massacre at age 6 and his mom to drought at age 11. Will you help him so he is better able to help the orphans of Lalibela? Please give generously.
