The Widows of Ethiopia
Adoption Ministry 1:27 is an outreach of Youth With a Mission of Ethiopia that works to care for abandoned widows. By finding sponsors in the U.S. who will adopt them, the ministry is able to better provide for poverty-stricken widows.
The ministry serves the large Ethiopian slum of Kore that started as a leper colony on the outskirts of Addis Ababa. It is a crowded village of deep poverty where residents pay high rent for shanty huts made of sticks and mud. The level of poverty and the housing conditions for the elderly and children are unimaginable.
