DOL - Jimma Medical

Posted by Bert Michels on Mar 04 2012
Jimma Medical (project officer: Sandi Petersen): Relief
The hundreds of families now living in Gingo and Tulema Leprosy Communities were once living on the street and in the local cemetery, describing themselves as ‘living above the dead, but below the living’.  
This project provides funds for children in need of medical help who are unable to pay to travel to get help or who can not pay for treatment or equipment. This fund was started for a child in a leprosy community with a congenital hole in her heart requiring surgery. In June 2007 this child went to Israel for surgery. Other children continue to need assistance through this fund.
