Dispatch: Outreach to Ethiopia
Community members Ben and Katie Bradley will soon be traveling to Ethiopia to bring home their daughter! We have walked this adoption journey with them for the past four years and want to help provide some practical items for the children who are still in America World’s transition homes and orphanages. It is very difficult to purchase some items in or ship them to Ethiopia, so Ben and Katie are very excited to take these items with them for the orphanages.
- unscented baby wipes (important: unscented/sensitive skin wipes are the only type used)
- socks for children newborn to 16 years old
antibacterial hand gel (large as well as handheld/individual containers needed)(thank you!)
- diaper cream, specifically with zinc oxide (Desitin or Boudreaux’s)
- towels for infants
Please be sure to check all expiration dates to ensure that items will not expire in the near future.
We will be collecting these items for the next couple months. The Bradleys will be able to transport up to 400 pounds of luggage full of gifts for these children! Please bring donations to the church by Sunday, June 28, and place them in the donation chest in the entry. Thank you for helping make a difference in the lives of these children and their caretakers!
