ETHIOPIA

The ancient Ethiopian monarchy maintained its freedom from colonial rule with the exception of a short-lived Italian occupation from 1936-41. In 1974, a socialist state was established. In 1991, after years of bloody coups, uprisings, wide-scale drought, and massive refugee problems, the regime was finally toppled and a constitution was adopted in 1994, and Ethiopia's first multiparty elections were held in 1995. A border war with Eritrea late in the 1990s ended with a peace treaty in December 2000. In November 2007, the Eritrea-Ethiopia Border Commission pronounced its work finished. Ethiopia has not accepted the borders and has not withdrawn troops from previously contested areas belonging to Eritrea. Life has been providing emergency food aid and is digging water wells in many villages throughout Ethiopia. Life also constructed a K-8 school and provides food baskets and fresh meat to struggling families during Ramadan and Eid Al-Adha

CAMPAIGNS IN THIS AREA

Water Wells

Water wells qualify as a source of ongoing charity. Donate a water well for your loved ones as a source of reward. Life digs water wells in villages and rural areas close to places of worship, hospitals, or schools.

Ramadan

Every year, Life distributes Ramadan Food Baskets in over 23 countries and also hosts Iftar meals in Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, villages in Africa and to communities in the USA. 

Udhiyah/Qurbani

For many families in Muslim countries like Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Afghanistan, meat is considered a luxury item out of their reach.  During this holiday season, one of the most important acts of worship is the sacrifice of a sheep, goat or cow as an Udhiyah/Qurbani.

Education

This year, you can make a difference by helping us to provide needy children with school uniforms, shoes, socks, underwear and backpacks filled with stationary, pens, pencils and crayons.
