Empower Ethiopia Funds New Water Tanks for Let Us Change Homes! Thank you to our donors!

A Post from Let Us Change on 5/26/20:

"Yesterday was Afrika Day. This day reminds us of the creation of the 'Organisation of African Unity' on May 25, 1963. 🌍This year we are thinking about the theme 'Climate Justice'. Africa countries are affected much harder by the consequences of climate change than Western countries, while their contribution is rather modest. This raises a lot of questions global: How do we divide the cost of climate financing worldwide? And what are the consequences of our own climate policy on African countries? On Afrika Day we will stop here for a while. 

Climate change is also burning current in Ethiopia. The biggest threat is the persistent drought. It leads to failed harvesting, and regularly reduces water supply. Thanks to the support of Empower Ethiopia we were able to place new water tanks in the homes last month. So much that our children always have a spare of clean water."
