494 days ago EOR partnered with FOVC-Ethiopia. FOVC (friends of orphans and vulnerable children) is located outside the village of Shanto, in the Wolaito zone of Southern Ethiopia. This area is one of the poorest parts of the country, and the children in this region were truly suffering.
Our goal was to fund the building of their school, orphanage care center and kitchen. This partnership would be the biggest project in EOR history. We had anticipated it would take us 3 or 4 years to fully fund this project. Well we were wrong.
With donations from $6 to $5000 EACH and EVERY donation made a BIG difference. We are thrilled to share that this week a very generous couple in our Nation’s Capital funded the remaining $2500 for FOVC-Ethiopia.
100%, yes 100% of this project was funded by donors of Ethiopian Orphan Relief, Inc. YOU are EOR, YOU provided a place for these most vulnerable children. YOU are the difference.
In November fellow board members, Paige, Lauren and I will be placing the very last brick and I can guarantee you there will be many tears and cheers of happiness.
With much gratitude we say thank you for giving with your heart, brick by brick to finish this project.
