Ethiopia is a beautiful country in East Africa with a population of over 94 million. 30.7 % of population survives on less than $1.25 per day. Inadequate access to primary education, child labor, HIV, lack of sanitation and clean water, and chronic food insecurity continue to be major barriers to self-sustainability, health, and success for many Ethiopians.
There are 4.5 million orphans in Ethiopia. Children’s HopeChest (CHC) sponsors care for the orphaned and vulnerable children of Ethiopia by partnering with existing CarePoints throughout the country to provide support according to their needs. Sponsorship helps to provide spiritual discipleship, nutritional and educational support, basic medical care, and invaluable relationships with their sponsors and other local leaders.
