LHM-Ethiopia blanket donations

LHM-Ethiopia distrbuted few blankets to needy blind deafs

in

Addis Ababa and prisoners in Ambo.

As the days in these few months are unusually very cold some of the grains in the fields and plants in Addis ababa and other part of the country are very much affected. At our LHM compound some of the plants have dried and the harvest has become very poor in the country sides.

Due to this changed weather the people specially the poor ones are very much trouble. Some of the wild animals in different place have been dying in the jungles. Due to this problem LHM Ethiopia thought the best thing to do is help the needy ones by gift of blankets. In the last few days of January we have been giving blankets to the needy ones.

Some of the blind deaf who live in Addis Ababa have recieved blankets. Some were elderlies and were receiving their gifts by the help of others. Beginning and end of last week all together nine needy people have received blankets from our LHM office.

Of the many Blind deafs, we have helped six of them who came through their association. Three others one above have come from the near by Mekanissa MekaneYesus church

After the gift ceremony we shared them the word of God and prayed together.

The other groups of blanket recipients were prisoners in Ambo. LHM Ethiopia had traveled to Ambo to do the package of programs and have graduated some 85 BCc students in Bori. On its way, LHM Ethiopia distributed 25 blankets to men prisoners and 10 blankets to women prisoners at Ambo prison center
