Mattress Delivery in Korah

The mission team from the University of Kentucky spent their last day serving in Ethiopia bringing much needed beds to several families in Adoption Ministry 1:27’s program in the community of Korah in Addis Ababa.  Here are a few photos from Friday.

Tesfaye told the team about several of the families they would be delivering mattresses and bedframes to before they began.

Stepping into these homes is an extremely humbling experience.  These are truly deplorable living conditions.

People sleep on cardboard, tarps or share one bed for many adults and children.

You can’t drive down the narrow paths to some of these homes so everything has to be carried in.
