Stories of Ethiopia

Each of these people I met gave me their name and told me their story.

These are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, leaders, farmers, priests. They are resilient despite the fact that they have experienced loss beyond what most humans ever face. They have lost children, spouses, jobs, health. But despite all of that they have still have hopes and dreams for the future. I can't wait to tell you their stories.
