Famine Update
Posted: 01 Jul 2000

In response to an emergency appeal for famine relief in Ethiopia and Eritrea, CNEWA’s generous donors provided an extraordinary amount of assistance–to date, roughly $360,000 has been donated.

The monies flow through the church’s network–bishops, priests and religious–to thousands of children and their families in local parish communities in Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Notwithstanding the logistical difficulties due to war between the two countries, CNEWA is able to get your help to them, thanks be to God.
