Thank you! We are pleased to share that Samrawit's family is fully sponsored!
Samrawit is a resilient mother whose husband died unexpectedly when she was pregnant with their third child.At 4 years old, Samrawit witnessed her father being killed and was then raised by her uncle. At 16 Samrawit got married and she worked as a waitress until she had her twins. Her husband did construction work and one day died suddenly on the job site. After using her husband's savings to cover the house rent, Samrawit eventually ran out of money. When she was admitted to the hospital to have her third baby, the health centre learned of their desperate situation and linked them with an organization that has provided them with short term financial support. Even with this help, the family lives in a mud hut with no windows and sometimes does not have enough for 3 meals per day. Samrawit is looking forward to having daycare support so that she can work hard and know that her youngest is being safely cared for.
Through sponsorship Samrawit'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.
