The impacts of COVID-19 have turned a situation into an emergency for many families in Ethiopia. Dream for the Future with its local partner Talita Rise-Up, are continuously providing an immediate food support to families greatly affected by the pandemic.
Last month, Dream for the Future began distributing bags filled with flour, maize, sugar, and soaps to 40 families in the rural town of Ethiopia.
Aberash is one of the mothers who benefits from the food distribution program. Yonas, her husband has left a job of pushing the cart due to the economy effect of COVID-19 in the town. “I don’t know what I’d do without this distribution.” Aberash says. “When I get the food support from Talita-Rise Up then I can provide for my family. We can sleep without going hungry for weeks.”
