After walking for three hours from her mountain hut in the scorching morning heat, Yennesh, a young mother from the hills area of Hawassa, in southern Ethiopia, arrives at the gate of the Bushulo Health Centre. She clutches her two young children who are suffering from acute malnutrition caused by a lack of access to healthy food, including leafy green vegetables. Yennesh looks up and says a silent prayer, asking God for His mercy and help.

This was Yennesh and her family just seven years ago. With her children suffering from acute malnutrition, Yennesh’s only Christmas wish was to be able to save their lives.

Today, Yennesh and her family’s story is one of life, health and hope thanks to Sister Anna Kim and the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM), who manage Bushulo Health Centre. The Sisters are helping to save the lives of undernourished children every day; however, their current emergency services are directly dependent upon generous donations from our faithful Catholic Mission donors such as yourself, and the broader Catholic Church, to continue. There are thousands of children at risk in the Hawassa region right now who still require your help.

Some gift examples include:


$56 helps cover the cost of running medical outreach programs for the community for one day. These programs provide free treatment and nutritional aid for local families.


$225 contribution towards the running costs of the Community Gardening Project, which includes training and education of parents, as well as a seed and water management start-up kit to take home. The total yearly cost of this project is $26,565.


Please give generously today to ensure so many more children can receive the gift of food, faith and a sustainable future this Christmas, and beyond.
