Current Needs

So you want to hear about how to help Bring Love In?!  We think that is great, and we would be happy to have you along on this journey to help widows and orphans in Ethiopia.  Bring Love In is a United States IRS registered 501c3 Non-Profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.

Here are the areas that we have needs right now, ways that you can help Bring Love In increase our reach. Because the truth is there is a lot more need in Ethiopia that we would like to meet, but we can’t do it without your help!

1. General expenses. 

These are the expenses that are not covered in our sponsorships, things like rent for the office, salaries for our office staff (social worker, psychologist, head house mother, accountant, nurse, secretary, general manager, purchaser).

We approach everything in this category with the same fierce resolve; keep costs low.  Yet in order to provide for the kids in our care in the best way possible we are willing to accept the fact that some costs are necessary, thankfully God is good!  And although it stretches our faith a little more each month when it comes time to pay the bills, He always comes through. Always.

Right now we are praying for more monthly givers and one time donations in this area so that we are able to handle the increased administration costs as our programs grow.

2. Sponsorships

We need new sponsors to help with our Forever Families.  The costs for each family have gone up in the last year and so we are needing to find new sponsors to help with our widow led households.  We have a total of 9 houses with 57 kids in them total, and we need to raise an additional $350 per month per house.    Will you help out?     Check back and see how progress is going, we hope to find new sponsors soon, and we need all the help we can get to make this happen.

The total cost for each Forever Family is $1200 per month, and we have $850 covered for each house so far.

3. Clothing

With 45 kids in our Forever Families, and another 91 in our Keep One Home program we go through an enormous amount of clothing and shoes, really its amazing how quickly these kids wear through things!  And so one of the needs that we have that never seems to go away is for shoes, clothes, jackets and underwear.  If you or someone you know is heading to Ethiopia we would be thrilled if you could load your suitcases up for us with as many new or gently used clothes as you can find.

When you arrive in Addis contact Nasrawit  and she can arrange to come pick everything up, or even better she can set up a time to give you a tour of Bring Love In and if you’re lucky you might even get a chance to meet the kids when they come home from school!

Nasrawit can be reached at +251 911 42 15 47

 

And there you have it, all the areas of need that we have currently.  Simply put, we would love to have you along to help!   If you have any questions about any of this please send us an email at Levi@bringlove.in or if you want to read about how we handle  financial accountability click here.
