OMO Child Ethiopia is an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) that works honestly and efficiently. A team of 14 people currently cares for 50 children and the administrative costs are kept within a reasonable limit. At the moment the organization is financed mainly by a sponsor in the USA and small donations via the website.
The sponsor, John Rowe, who is a photographer and film maker, has accompanied Lale Labuko for many years and over a period of 5 years, financed out of his own pocket, made an extremely moving film called “OMO Child – The River and The Bush”, which sheds light on these children’s situation better than words can explain.
