Current Donation Project
In cooperation with the organization "Mensch zu Mensch", we have realized projects in Ethiopia in the past years. These include the construction of a kindergarten, a community center or a Disability Center.
Now, we want to continue supporting the further development of the Disability Center in Jimma, Ethiopia. This is particularly important to us since in the African society people with a disability have been stigmatized for generations. In this part of the world, it is assumed that a disability is a curse of God. Usually, these people have little or no access to education, work and medical care.
In the above-mentioned center, disabled people can get medical care or get access to education. Four to five times a year, professional medical teams visit the center. In addition, wheelchairs, crutches, etc. are offered. Furthermore, a cooperation with the hospitals in Jimma and Addis Adaba was established.
Over the last few years, more than 1,000 people have taken advantage of the Disability Center's offerings. Meanwhile, the offers are not only used by people from the Jimma region. Some people even take a long trip to get treated at this Disability Center.
Therefore, on the piece of land that was provided for the project for free by the community, another hall is now to be built. This hall shall include a kitchen and a dining room as well as a workroom in which the wheelchairs, crutches, etc. can be rebuilt and repaired.
The total cost of the project is 29,925 €. We are happy that 10,000 € will be taken over by Aerosoft.
Aerosoft also asks its customers to help by donating that this project can be completed in the short term. Just follow this link.
