Like in any culture, the Ethiopian calendar is full of special occasions. Times to bring the family and neighbourhood together, make special food and share a good time. Our celebration parcels provide some of the key food and materials to help celebrate any of the major celebrations.
Celebration parcels can be bought by anyone and will be allocated to a family. If you are a sponsor you can purchase a parcel just for your family. Once purchased, we will contact you to confirm that you would like the parcel to go to your sponsored child. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know who you would like the parcel to go to when you purchase it.

|Fasika (Ethiopian Easter)||April – date varies|
