We have partnered with Brook Hills Development Organization in the Korah Community of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Korah was formed by lepers about 80 years ago on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, it is home to lepers, those living with HIV/ AIDS, widows, orphans and many more families who experience tragedy daily. Many of our families living in the Korah community live in the Addis Ababa’s land fill, and many rent homes made of plastic, tin, stick and tarps. Two of every four women are prostitutes, and many children are not given the privilege of school because they’re required to scavenge through the dump for anything useful such as: food, plastic and metal. BHDO’s director is Yemamu Ahmed, and his rescue story is incredible. Both of his parents were Muslim lepers, a Christian organization came through while he and his friends were scavenging through the trash. That day Yemamu and 9 of his friends were sponsored and sent to boarding school. Yemamu now brings hope to this community through a variety of programs: education, Christian counseling, childcare, nutrition and food distribution. We are so thankful for Gods Grace that He rescued Yemamu and His friends. We at Be There Ministries have the same heart as Yemamu and BHDO staff, we want to advocate for the people in Korah and to share the hope that is in Christ Jesus.
