Ethiopia’s Baby Tesfanesh: Her Story Goes On

Baby Tesfanesh
Back on January 29th, 2015 we introduced you to a new fund that America World had created in memory of Baby Tesfanesh, a medically fragile child that was brought to our transition home and died shortly after arrival due to many medical needs. 

Baby Tesfanesh's Story 

Unfortunately, we continue to care for children like baby Tesfanesh that are brought to our transition home by the Ethiopian government and we are in need of financial support to continue the work we do caring for these kids at our transition home. Donations made to our Baby Tesfanesh Fund directly impact our ability to care for these medically fragile children. Many children come to our transition home severely malnourished, some we are able to save and some we are not.  Please help us increase the number of children that are given a chance at life through America World’s transition home and our orphanage partners. 

Here is a great example of a young boy that we were successfully able to rehabilitate.  These before and after pictures show the incredible different 4 months can make with the appropriate medical care and support.  There is nothing more rewarding and important than watching these medically fragile children thrive and become healthier.
