Ethiopia

Colin and Ellen Jackson spent two years working with VSO in Debre Birhan, Ethiopia. They formed a link with Addis Kidan Baptist Church while they were there. On their return the church at Woodbridge decided to sponsor 30 needy children through the Addis Kidan church.

We recently received a request from Dereje at the Addis Kidhan Church to ask if we could help them with the purchase of windows and doors for their new church buildings. The church are trying to save up to buy 15 windows and 4 doors costing about 120,000 Ethiopian birr (which is about £4000) . Please start saving your "pennies for Ethiopia" or simply make a donation. The money needs to be passed to Ruth Hughes and marked "pennies for Ethiopia". The photo shows the building and where the windows will fit.

The previous gift from the church (December 2017) was of money collected as part of our "pennies for Ethiopia" appeal and was a Christmas present for the families. Dereje was very grateful for our fellowship's kindness. The money was used to purchase grain for making bread and blankets. Here is a photo of the distribution of grain to the families we support.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.

The photo below shows the distribution of food to the families that we support in Debre Birhan, Ethiopia. This picture was taken in June 2018 and shows food paid for by WQC being given to the poorest families.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.
