Critical Need in Ethiopia: In Memory of Baby Tesfanesh

Baby Tesfanesh
Please join us as we mourn the loss of sweet baby Tesfanesh.  Tesfanesh was a child in one of our partner orphanages in Ethiopia that was in need of critical medical care.  America World took over her care but had to immediately admit her to the hospital. Tesfanesh fought for her life, but unfortunately, during her 2 week hospital stay her health continued to decline and she went to be with the Lord last week.  In honor of sweet baby Tesfanesh, we are asking for you to join us in raising $25,000 to address the urgent medical needs of the many young children in this orphanage and our other orphanage partners. 

There is an orphanage in Ethiopia that is struggling to meet the medical needs and health conditions of their children.  $25,000 will allow us to hire a full time doctor for the orphanage, additional nurses, several more nannies to increase the child to caregiver ratio and provide the necessary medical supplies to continue to provide critical medical care for these precious children.

America World is committed to the children of Ethiopia.  We currently have a donor that pays annually for 3 full time nannies for this orphanage. AWAA also contributes financially on an annual basis for the care of children in orphanages in Ethiopia. It is a difficult reality that children are still fighting for their lives in Ethiopia, but with your help we CAN save the lives of many of these children.

Please consider making a financial donation to help us meet this critical need and raise $25,000 as soon as possible.  100% of your donation will go towards this orphan initiative.  We thank God for the life of baby Tesfanesh and ask Him to move through you and AWAA to save the lives of the countless other children that deserve a family.

To make a donation, please send us a check made out to AWAA with “Baby Tesfanesh†in the memo line, or donate by credit card online at  When making a credit card donation, please choose General Donation from the drop down menu and write “Baby Tesfanesh†in the Notes section.  Checks may be mailed to the following address:
