When Gashaw was 11 years old he contracted malaria and his family brought him to a witch doctor for healing.
His legs were injected with an unknown serum and within a few months he lost all mobility in both legs. To this day he scoots himself along the ground with the use of a cane and sandaled hand.
Gashaw lives in Korah with his wife Lemlem, and their beautiful baby boy. As a young man, Gashaw would often grow sad watching his friends graduate from college, while he struggled to survive. In spite of these challenges, and with the support of HFK, Gashaw has completed his Level 1 Certificate in Information Technology in July 2018. He is now determined to continue on in his schooling, in order to obtain Level 2 and complete his full diploma.
This monthly sponsorship will provide Gashaw and Lemlen with holistic support such as such as food, housing, medical care, spiritual care and counselling, education, health and life skills training, income generation and business development opportunities. Being part of HFK’s Family Empowerment Program will also give this family an opportunity to participate in many of our community and children's programs.
