Helping Street Kids 365 Days A Year
At Hope365 we have seen the desperate plight faced by over 1000 kids who live on the streets of Shashemene, Ethiopia. Through no fault of their own these young children, many of them as young as nine or ten years of age, have no beds to sleep in and no one to care for them.
They're forced to sleep in doorways, drains or even on the street every day of every year. Some have been orphaned, some are victims of divorce and poverty and others have been trafficked from different towns with the false promise of "finding work" (sadly this often results in modern day childhood slavery).
We're currently trying to establish a new centre to care for 60 of these children whom we can't appropriately reunite with their families. It may not sound like many but for each of the 60 it will be a life-transforming event.
