MFFO Joins Worldwide Orphans With The Ethiopian Water Project

worldwide orphan water project

A few months ago, Mothers Fighting For Others started the Clean Water Project. Our original goal was to raise $30,000 to put in 10 water purification units in schools and orphanages. But due to Kenya’s post-election violence, we here at Mothers Fighting For Others have decided to join forces with the ongoing Ethiopian Program with A Child’s Right and Worldwide Orphans Foundation. Read about the work that A Child’s Right has done in China, Nepal, and Cambodia. We feel honored to be able to assist in a small way to help contribute to the Ethiopian Program. WWO is run by Dr. Jane Aronson, one of the preeminent international adoption pediatricians in the world. Here is a little information about WWO:

“In January 2007 WWO, in partnership with AIDS Health Foundation (AHF) which treats adults with HIV/AIDS, opened the WWO-AHF Family HealthCare Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Center is a full-service care facility for treating and monitoring the care of orphans and children in families with HIV/AIDS, and for the treatment of adults with HIV/AIDS. The Center helps to bring orphaned children into the mainstream of community life.”*

You can read more about Worldwide Orphans and the amazing work they do for Ethiopians children. We look forward to helping any way we can to help WWO get this project funded.

If you would like to help, write all checks to A Child’s Right and write MFFO in the memo. Eric, the Director, at A Child’s Right will distribute the funds to the Ethiopian Project.

I would just like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that has donated already. It’s truly amazing what can happen when we come together for a greater purpose!
