“Let’s Eat Together“, Kinebet, NebFoto and the Ghion Journal are teaming up to start an initiative we are calling “እንብላ: Give As You Can, Take As You Need”. The intention behind this campaign is to start an organic food donation drive where those who have the means give perishable foods while those who need the foods are able to pick up the donated items for free at local Ethiopian markets.
Over the coming days and weeks, we will expand the footprint of እንብላ: Give As You Can, Take As You Need. Please help us help our people, there are many families who are struggling during these hard times. We are called upon as Jews, Christians and Muslims, as well as anyone who has love in their hearts, to give hope to people who need it the most during these Holiday Seasons.
Additionally, we will be heading out to homeless shelter tomorrow afternoon as we team up with “Let’s Eat Together” to feed homeless men and women at the New York Avenue Homeless Shelter. This is a family friendly event where we will provide nourishment and words of encouragement to those who desperately need both.
I know this to be true, but for the grace of God, we too could be where the homeless are at right now. In fact, four years ago, I was precisely where they are at, I was homeless for almost two years. What gave me hope and eventually led me out of the darkness was the love that countless many gave me. I am passing along the kindness to others, please join me, Bethlehem Bekele and Joseph Gessese tomorrow as we feed our fellow brothers and sisters who need it the most. Enamesegenalen::
