A few months ago, Aviation for Humanity visited the Sele Enat Mahiber (meaning ‘in place of mother’) shelter in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. During the visit, we discovered that the shelter was in need of baby formula. Through the generous donations from our supporters, and with the help of our in-country contact and friend, Mr. Dawit, we were able to bring 100 lbs (48 cans) of baby formula to their facility this month.
Sele Enat Mahiber is a “not for profit, child focused, non-governmental organization founded in 2002, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The mission of the organization is to alleviate the unbearable suffering and unnecessary loss of life of orphaned children by providing them with their basic needs while keeping them in the community where possible; arranging and connecting families for those who do not have close kin; and building the economic independence of women heads of households by providing financial support and loans for income generating schemes, counseling and training on small scale trades, enabling them to provide a better future for their children. The objective of the organization is to be part of the ongoing effort to improve the life of vulnerable and underserved community members of Ethiopia, especially women and children.”
