It is a great privilege to work alongside our wonderful Ethiopian staff and beneficiaries. It takes a great deal of strength, support, and courage for families and children to overcome the many challenges that poverty places in their way. We welcome prayers for the health and strength of our beneficiaries as they gain confidence in their strengths, learn new skills, stretch their minds through education and training, and take steps toward self-sufficiency. We also welcome prayers for our leadership and staff in Canada and in Ethiopia – to have wisdom and discernment in how to work collaboratively with the community of Korah to bring holistic transformation to those who need it.
A Prayer for Korah

Kids Helping Kids
Kids Clubs, Sunday Schools and Youth Groups are often inspired when learning about global issues and children living in extreme poverty. Kids can make a difference! We have had numbers of schools and youth groups creatively raise funds for children in our Berta Breakfast Program, After-School Tutoring, and Youth programs in Korah.

Hope for Korah sends teams to Ethiopia every year. On each of these trips, we carry numbers of check-in bags full of donations to distribute to those in need. Many clothing items are placed in the HFK ‘Souk’ (Amharic for store), and are available for our children and families to purchase with points that they earn through attendance, hard work, serving others, or improving artisan skills.
Various items are always needed on the ground such as clothing, vitamins, medical supplies, and new or gently used clothing for our families. If you are interested in collecting donations to be sent to Korah, or will be on a team travelling to Ethiopia and would like to pack items to bring for Hope for Korah, please reference our current list of needed items. Please contact Karissa, our HFK Teams’ Coordinator, for more information on delivery instructions.
