This #GivingTuesdayNow, as we approach Mother’s Day, we remember mothers who cannot be with their children. Imagine not knowing if your child is alive or dead. That is the case for many mothers who, simply because of adverse life situations, have been separated from their children by adoption. They are not just poor people who wanted a better life for their kids and feel ok about it. They are mothers and fathers who miss their children deeply, just like anyone would in their position. Next, imagine being their child, always wondering, why was I given away?
You can help us reconnect these mothers with their children through your donation.
$50 will enable our social workers to process three Ethiopian family intakes.
$100 will cover report services for 1-2 cases from our free database.
$500 will allow us to buy 10 DNA kits for Ethiopian mothers.
$700-$1,000 will cover paid searches for 1-2 adoptees in need.
Times are tough right now because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will get through it, but we need your help. Know that every team member outside Ethiopia is a volunteer and every dollar goes directly into our Ethiopian services. No amount is too small. Ongoing donations are especially helpful.
“I’ve seen the tears of Ethiopian mothers desperate for news of their children adopted abroad. I’ve heard adoptees who have questions about their own life stories. They all deserve the truth. They deserve connection. They deserve to find each other, and Beteseb Felega (EAC) helps make that happen.” – Adoptive Mother
