Hosanna Addis Kidan CarePoint

Hosanna is located in the southeastern part of Ethiopia, 230km from the capital, Addis Ababa.

The population of Hosanna continues to grow due to migration from rural areas. There are a number of problems associated with the population growth such as an increase in the number of orphans, higher levels of HIV/AIDS, and an increase in food prices. Many of the children in Hosanna have lost their fathers, and their mothers are facing difficulties in providing food and shelter, and sending their children to school.

The women obtain their income from selling firewood, working on construction sites as daily laborers, or working as house maids. Their average daily income is less than one dollar.

Empower a Child at Hosanna Addis Kidan

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.
