Wish List!

My dear colleagues in the social work department have offered to host a "shower" for the kids at Mareshet's orphanage! Please consider purchasing something from the list below, or toss me a few bones and I'll make sure they go to purchase the most needed items. Right now, money for food and infant formula is critically needed. One of the world's poorest countries, Ethiopia is facing food and fuel scarcity, driving up the cost for our nonprofit orphanage for basics like grain, milk, vegetables, and electricity. My daughter is one of the kids that benefit directly from your contributions! Check out their website for more ways to help:
