Helping Kids in Ethiopia

We will have the opportunity to transport much-needed donations to the transition home and orphanages in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. These homes provide care for many children and always have needs. The over-the-counter medications that are readily available for us are not as easily obtainable, and prices in the stores have increased by over 30% this summer.

Please, consider purchasing some of these items to send with us to help!

  • infant's acetaminophen
  • infant's ibuprofen
  • infant's liquid vitamins
  • children's acetaminophen
  • children's Benedryl (or store-brand equivalent)
  • children's ibuprofen
  • children's vitamins
  • baby gas drops
  • anti-fungal ointment
  • anti-fungal shampoo (like Nizoral)
  • lice treatment shampoo
  • antibiotic ointments
  • diaper ointment
  • band aids
  • surgical gloves
  • hand sanitizer
  • baby wipes
  • formula with DHA
  • diapers (mostly sizes 1-3)
  • baby bottles with nipples
  • pens
  • pencils
  • white board markers
  • masks (the germ-blocking kind)
  • pillowcases
  • office supplies

Cash is always good. We can buy other things that they need there.

We hope to be traveling before the end of October, so please help us with our packing by getting items to us as soon as you can.
