Meet Abreham Tesafaye and his mom.
Mom is sick. She may not look it, but she is awaiting her 2nd surgery since her son’s arrival for a uterine tumor. Time is running out. Without a miraculous healing from the Lord, she is in dire need of this surgery that could save her life. Her doctor gives her 3 months until surgery before it grows.
But how will she pay for it on an income of 100 birr per month that she gets from washing clothes? Her rent is 400 birr for the small place they do have. And when her child’s father walked out on them neglecting his responsibilities as father and provider?
You would think her thoughts would be of herself, but her thoughts are on her son.
Who will take care of him should she not get this surgery? Family is far away; they are unavailable. Will he become another orphan, another photo, another child in Ethiopia that has fallen through the cracks?
We hope and pray for God’s provision for this family. Abreham is new to the BCI program and is in need of sponsorship so he can go to school – a chance for education, food, clothing, and a growing knowledge of God’s hope for his future as the family comes from the Orthodox faith (believers in Mary and a priest), not yet believers in Jesus Christ.
Are you willing to sponsor this child or donate toward this mom’s surgery? For $30 CDN
per month, Abreham can start school at BCI Academy. If you sponsor a child through BCI, the organization not only allows but encourages packages to be sent for the child and visits are always welcomed.
