Food For Our Friends

 
Many Ethiopians live in poverty on a daily basis, but COVID-19 has made life harder than ever. 



The people we serve, survive by doing day labor.



Jobs like construction, house cleaning, sewing, cooking, selling goods have all been impacted by shelter at home orders in Ethiopia and the cost of living has skyrocketed.






Transformation Love is responding to this crisis by providing much needed food supplies. 




 

We have been distributing truck loads of food to families in desperate need. 



  
 



We love our Ethiopian friends and hope and pray for God's continued protection and provision.




Thank You For Your Support!  


Transformation Love's Supply Distribution


In April, Sherry made a trip to Ethiopia to distribute needed supplies to our families.
Our families were anxiously awaiting for their distribution of supplies.
A big truck load of teff arrives at the compound.
Teff is a staple used to make Injera, Injera is their Ethiopian bread.
Workineh, our great project manager arranged all the supplies for the distribution before Sherry arrived.
He did an excellent job finding top quality supplies for our families. 


The scale is ready for weighing the hundred kilo bags of teff.


First they weigh the man and then they weigh the man holding the bag.
Then they take the man's weight off of the total weight from the scale, to make sure it is a hundred kilos.

Semenge, our wonderful Social Worker, counts and checks in all twenty one bags.
Now they are dividing the hundred kilo bag into multiple bags
to give one to each family.

We choose the best quality of teff because we love them so much!
Solomon our guard and all around helper is weighing the bags. 

Each family receives teff, chickpeas (which is used to make Shuro), cooking oil, hair oil, all purpose liquid soap, body bar soap, bar laundry soap, and feminine products for the girls.
Everybody was so thankful for the distribution!
