HOURS PLEDGED: 200

THE STORY:

Thon Met is currently working with 14 South Sudanese refugee families, 11 of which are still waiting to be relocated from UN refugee camps to Thon Met's village in Ethiopia.  Thon Met's most urgent project is building additional huts to house these families, and arranging safe transportation for the families to the village.  Each hut costs $2,000 to build and transportation for an entire family to the village costs $1,000. With your help, we will be able to build homes for and relocate the remaining 11 families to safety.

The refugee families that arrive at the Thon Met village have suffered enormous physical hardship--having been deprived food, water, and medicine. The families have also all experienced incredible emotional trauma, having witnessed horrific attrocities and almost all having lost multiple family members to violence. Thon Met is working to arrange medical care for the village through the nearby hospital. This will include physical wellness visits and care, as well as psychological, post-traumatic support.

Thon Met's ultimate goal is to build a school for the children of the Thon Met village and surrounding towns.  The school will be a safe environment for the children to learn and thrive.  Still in it's first stages, Thon Met is working with professors from the local Gambela University to set up classes for the mothers and children of the Thon Met village.  We are currently seeking donations to fund a blackboard, books, and writing supplies to get the school off the ground. Please contribute today.
