Ethiopia Orphans Benefit from New African online Store

Buy a cool shirt, bring aid to Ethiopian orphans.
Proceeds from purchases of “Hope Ethiopia” t-shirts will be contributed toward Children’s Hope International Foundation Ethiopia projects by, a new online store featuring African centered products. The big heart over Ethiopia on the t-shirt design is symbolic of the desire of Cindy Rohwedder, Baobab Haus Co-Founder and CEO, to help orphans from the country in which she adopted her son.   

“We brought home our son from Ethiopia in May of 2010, and have had a hard time finding things that he would actually want, like toys, and books,” Rohwedder said. “So our shop focuses on African adoption gifts and other African items.”

The $20 “Hope Ethiopia” t-shirt comes in men’s and youth sizes as well as a women’s V-neck design.

Santa Brought Smiles to HIV Orphans

Dozens of Santa’s tiny helpers made this year’s Christmas party extra festive at Linh Xuan Children Center (Tam Binh #2), in Ho Chi Minh City. Although Santa’s delivery of the photos was delayed by a couple of months, it is always fun to see these Vietnamese orphan children, who are living with the virus that causes AIDS, enjoying themselves at the annual event put on by Thuy Nguyen Thon Thi Diem, Children’s Hope good friend in Vietnam.

2000 People Left Homeless After Fire

Hundreds of villagers gather two days after a massive fire destroyed the village of Pallam

A massive flash fire on Monday, left over 2000 people homeless in a poor fishing village on the east coast of India. More than 500 huts in Pallam were torched as flames quickly spread across the tightly packed thatched roofs of this East Godwari district community in Andhra Pradesh.

Mission to the Nations, Children’s Hope partner in India, has been asked to help provide aid to the thousands of people who lost all they own.

“I want to help these fire victims because everything like their clothes, huts, animals, their food, everything was totally burned,” wrote Paparao Yeluchuri in asking for Children’s Hope’s help.

With only a narrow road leading into the village that is surrounded by water on three sides, district firefighters were slowed in their battle against the flames. This amplified the property loss for a greater number of villagers.
