Within the scope of the Orphan Solidarity Days program, IHH Humanitarian Relief foundation put a smile on the faces of 1,442 orphans in Ethiopia.

Currently, there are 6 million orphans in Ethiopia who have suffered from disease, poverty and political conflict. Due to the arid climate and lack of education, millions of children are struggling to survive.

Toys distributed to 480 children

IHH has offered a helping hand to more than 800 thousand orphans across the globe in over 135 countries. Within the scope of the "Orphans Solidarity Days" program, 942 orphans in schools across the Siltie Zone-Sankura region received aid. 480 children in the Hulbarg region, located about 185 kilometers away from the capital were given aid packages, stationary and toys. They were also gifted 5 thousand Qur'ans.

100 goats to 50 families

Also, within the scope of IHH's micro finance project, 50 families in the country received 100 goats. Cattle was distributed to 8 orphan families under the orphan families support program. Also, to support families who do poultry farming, 10 families were gifted 25 Turkey's and a cage each. Regional bee farming is a major source of income, therefore 15 families were given a bee hive.
