Gifts from Germany
For my welcome, Lale had invited all the children and employees to injera and cake. Speeches were held and the children were told where I come from and how we support from Austria and Germany. I sat with the children and there was a lot of laughter and whispering.
The next day was probably the most exciting part of my visit for the children. We had financed school bags for all children via online crowdfunding, which we handed over in a little ceremony. In addition, a 30 kg suitcase with clothes, painting materials and hygiene articles was opened and the clothes were distributed among the children. In the next few days, the new favorite clothes were worn right away and it was nice to see how little it takes to bring a smile to the children’s faces. And of course, I fell in love with my godchild, the two-year-old Metsenanat.
The following video gives an idea about the little celebration.
