SAED ETIOPIA and the Apostolic Vicariate have combined their efforts by setting up a primary health-care service in Agaro Bushi. A partnership agreement was signed in August 2011. With a dependable local partner at his side, SAED ETIOPIA has provided a solid basis for the clinic project.put the clinic project. Further initiatives supervised by the bishop’s team are ready to be implemented.
Petite Soeur Askale Mariam de Jésus, Fraternité, Wushwush
Sister Askale Mariam’s dream has always been to give a sign of hope – and much more - to the rural population living isolated in the mountains of Kaffa. Together we have embarked on this hopefully enduring adventure. As our mutual commitment deepens, slowly and steadily, we are confident that we can realize a small miracle for the children of Warwara. Sister Askale Mariam is currently in charge of the kindergarten. She is also responsible for personnel and for training.
