Ethiopian – Canadians donated school materials for students in Ethiopia. It all started from a simple conversation of Hanna and her friends at an Ethiopian restaurant in Toronto, Rendezvous. Hanna, a Toronto resident, mentioned to friends about a humanitarian organization in Ethiopia Called Meseret.
Everyone on the table pitched and sent the money through mr. Yemane to Addis through which dozens of school materials were purchased. Mr Yemane Haile along with the Ethiopica Link radio show host Yonas Hagos and Mr. Bemenet handed over the school resources. Grateful to thesupportt by the Ethiopian
–Canadians, founder and Executive Director of Meseret Humanitarian Organization, Meseret Azage advised others to follow the suit. According to Meseret the school materials will be distributed among school kids.
The Ethiopian based Meseret Humanitarian Organization aims at providing school materials for kids in Ethiopia through its project, ‘One Pack for one Kid’ By the end of July, the organization could collect close to 40,000 Scholl materials. Anyone interested in donations can contact the organization, www.meserethumanitarian.org.
