Bogalech's Family

As a young mother with no education, Bogalech goes to the street to beg to feed her children and pay the rent.

Bogalech has three children and came from a rural area with her husband to get medical treatment for his intestinal problems. The government hospital could not help him and they have no money for further diagnosis/treatment. He has tried cultural medicine and is often away from home seeking healing through an orthodox practice called ‘holy water’. This is a cleansing ritual believed to have healing properties. Bogalech's home is made of mud and is situated next to the dump. There is nothing in the house except for one, thin mattress. At night she covers her children with cardboard to keep warm. The family eats leftovers that Bogalech can find for meals.  As there is no water in her compound, it is a big job to regularly travel to bring water in jugs. Bogalech also needs medical attention for a heart condition she has. If she can get some support and daycare for the children, Bogalech has some weaving skills and would like to use those to begin helping her family.

Through sponsorship Bogalech's family will be able to receive 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 youth, education, and community programs.
