Projects in Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, our Movement is working very hard to improve the terrible standard of living of certain groups of the population. Even in this African state, the Movement is running several projects, of varied type and in varied localities.

Demmi Dollo and Sakko are two such areas. Poverty and misery have no limit or control in these two areas. The main problems in these two cities and the villages next to them are leprosy and elephantiasis.

We have two helping systems: prevention, and cure. Over 4000 cases are taken care of every year. However, we are not providing all the necessary cures, as we lack the means.

Still, that little we offer is heartfelt. Houses are being built for the lepers, so that they do not keep on living in the cemeteries or places of great misery.
