Tirhas' Family

Thank you! We are pleased to share that Tirhas' Family is now fully sponsored!

Tirhas is a widow and a mother of three who is also caring for her 15 year old brother. Tirhas left her family of origin after some trauma and found herself living on the streets of Addis Ababa. She met her husband, began a family with him and also took in her brother and sister when her mother died. Her sister has since married and moved on, however her brother continues to live with Tirhas’s family. Since her husband passed away from a medical condition, her brother sometimes helps with babysitting. He has not had many opportunities to go to school. Tirhas and her family have a one room mud home which she pays for by washing clothes and begging. The family usually eats from hotel leftovers. The children go to Berta breakfast program and the school age children receive lunch at school.  She usually begs for their dinner. Tirhas is hoping to get some support so that she can begin working.

Through sponsorship Tirhas' 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.
