Well....here it is. This is a video that I put together to show you all first hand, just why we all came back so moved by the area in Ethiopia where the trash dump is. This area has over 100 thousand residents who live in complete poverty, eating out of the trash, living and working out of the trash in order to survive. Of course, the saddest are the children that live there.
Keep in mind that this was just one day of our trip and then we went back on the last day to say goodbye. This place impacted all of us to no end. It really shows you how important the work that Sumer is doing actually is and what a difference it is making in the lives of these children. We came back more determined than ever to help them in areas that are only a dream for them. One of those areas is a well. In order for them to get a well, they must own their own land. So land comes first and then a well. They need $25,000 to secure the land in order to be able to start drilling a well. So....that is what we are going for. We will put it out there and see how many people can come together in order to make this a reality for this community that gets forgotten by all who live around there.
Don't just look at this as another person who is asking for more, more, more. See it for yourself and then ask yourself what you would do if you saw that and then had to come home to what we have here in America. As you will see....it is the children that deserve so much more for their future. We are all still trying to process what we saw and use it as motivation to really make a difference. The need is sponsors....and land for a well. Pray whether you can make a difference.
