A COMMUNITY ENDING HUNGER AND POVERTY

THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT, HUNGER HAS NOW ENDED FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN ENEMOR ETHIOPIA

The Hunger Project first started working with the Enemor community in 2009. At that time the community faced huge challenges. There was no infrastructure: no hospitals, schools or running water. The community lived in chronic hunger and poverty.

“THE RIVER WATER WAS BARELY SUITABLE FOR DRINKING BECAUSE IT WAS SO DIRTY.” – Sehari

An Epicentre was constructed to house community programs in health, education, adult literacy, nutrition, improved farming techniques and food security. Members of the community have been given access to microfinance loans and skills training so that they can start a business and earn an income. Water and sanitation facilities have been constructed and new medical clinics and schools have been opened. Sehari says that before The Hunger Project came to her community, her family had to travel long distances to collect water from a river. The water was so dirty it often made them sick.

THANKS TO A NEW WATER PUMP, SEHARI AND HER FAMILY NOW HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN, SAFE WATER CLOSE TO THEIR HOME. HER CHILDREN ARE HEALTHY AND CAN GO TO SCHOOL

Thanks to your support, the Enemor community have the skills, capacity and resources to continue these programs themselves until hunger is a thing of the past.
