Right on Track
May 20, 2023
Easter Holiday is one of the major Holidays that the B Loved Ethiopia kids celebrate. The Sodo and Addis kids celebrated the Holiday in a beautiful and memorable way.
The kids were taken to a big concert conducted by a young group of Sodo and there were performances of beautiful songs and music that the kids loved. They all attended the Holiday program at Sunday services with their moms and a social worker. They have learned about the meaning of Passover and talked about the resurrection for the whole month. The kids assisted the moms and aunts in preparation for the Holiday and were involved in the cleaning of the group homes and group home compound area. Everyone shared a delicious meal and the day’s festivities were enjoyed by all!
The community and church volunteers came frequently to the group homes and to the center to spend time with our kids. A team of volunteers came to B Loved Ethiopia Sodo project two times in the month of April. They celebrated Easter with the kids and shared Bible stories, gave advice, sang songs and played games. The volunteers also conducted a meeting with the social workers to discuss the summer kids program.
David, our founder, also came to visit all the kids. It was a joyful time to have fun, play games, swim, and play music together.
B Loved is still constructing its holistic child care and youth empowerment center at Bishoftu town but it's right on track! God is helping us with great success on the building progress. The construction has made work opportunity for about 40 women and men as well as other different professionals. The progress is incredible and we have not experienced any problems. We’re looking forward to it being complete.
B Loved Ethiopia Bishoftu project is doing multiple things on the property and in the reporting month we started horticulture farming in the center. We purchased 15,000 different kinds of seedlings and planted them on our farm. We also purchased a water pump to use water from the nearby lake. The kids all received new clothes and are settling in well.
Thank you for your ongoing love and support. We could not do this without YOU!
