Easter, known as Fasika, is a very special time of year in Ethiopia. It is traditional to fast in the lead up to the day and celebrate with a chicken stew dish, shared with neighbours and family. If you would like to help a family in Ethiopia celebrate Easter this year, we are gathering a fund to share among the disadvantaged families our work supports.
We support 360 families so a donation of £10 from one sponsor could provide some basic food for a family, £20 could provide a full celebration meal. We would like to raise at least £360 for all the families.
By setting up an Easter Fund we are able to make sure that all families can benefit from a gift at this time of celebration and they are able to choose how their gift is spent – travelling to spend it with family, on food or kitchen supplies for the day.
To give to the Easter fund just click on the button below, make your donation through Charity Choice, and write ‘Easter fund’ in the ‘Your Donation Message’ box. We will contact you to confirm the donation has been received and update you on how the fund helped families celebrate.
If you would still like to give to your sponsored family specifically, you can still make a monetary gift directly to your family by donating and informing us how you would like the donation to be used.
Wishing you all a wonderful Easter!
