Help Save Mother and Daughters from Starvation
Organized by: Eric Martin
PLEASE HELP !!! This fundraiser is to save an Ethiopian woman and her daughters from starving. Her name is Belay and she was featured in a 2011 documentary called The Beggars of Addis Ababa which you can view at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EKNDJ9n_lA
If we can raise the funds we will travel to Ethiopia to make sure Belay and her daughters have the money to survive. We want all donors to see the difference they make in Belay's life so we will be filming the entire trip. Donor's can also chose to have their photo included in a photo album that we will present to Belay so she can see the people who are saying to her: "don't worry, we will not let you starve." Here is something Belay said regarding her daughter : "I know she won't have a life filled with joy and smiles. I'm just hoping that she won't starve." - Belay Yimer, Ethiopian Beggar.
Belay is the current provider for herself, two daughters, and one son. But the amount of money she gets from begging is decreasing which means she will not be able to sustain her family.
All money raised will go into a bank account that I will setup for Belay in Addis Ababa. If we can raise $10,000 it means that a family in Ethiopia will not starve. I've seen that a poverty charity headed by U2's singer "Bono" only gave 1% to the charity. Since I am paying for all travel expenses, 100% of your donations will go to saving Belay and her family. Please make sure you watch the video.
Here is more wisdom from Belay:
"Don't worry too much.
For a person that worries too much
not only the night,
but also the daytime will be dark."
