ISP student thoughts on the emergency in Ethiopia
By Anna Peterson, Assistant Director of ISP
Ethiopia, the second most populated country in Africa, is struggling after more than a year of civil war. The conflict has left thousands dead and forced more than two million people from their homes. In recent days, the war has shifted heavily in favor of the rebel forces. The Federal Government of Ethiopia has now called for a nationwide state of emergency and the officials in the capital, Addis Ababa, have begun preparing the residents of the city for the rebels' attacks.
A few days ago, LWC International Student Programs received a message from a couple of local host parents regarding the current state of affairs in Ethiopia and the impact it is having on an organization, Embracing Hope Ethiopia.
We have included some information below, but would also like to share some personal comments from a local student from Ethiopia. While she wishes to stay anonymous, she is passionate about speaking for her country and wishes to share her thoughts with the local community here in Kentucky:
"As someone who has lived 15 minutes away from EHE, and who has seen the work they have done over past years in all the times I've been there, I honestly believe that contributing to them is something that will make a difference. As Ethiopians in Ethiopia and all around the world commemorate Nov. 3, 2020, the day when an incident sparked this situation this week, every single life that was lost needlessly breaks hearts all over the world. Everyone who has had nothing to do with political agendas and schemes, mothers and children who were simply trying to make something of their lives and needlessly got dragged into this.If you are interested in donating to EHE and their mission after reading the included article from Embracing Hope Ethiopia (see photo below) and the comments from our ISP student, please go to:
