Building the future Senior Care Center- one break at a time! BLR is a nonprofit organization that has been serving destitute homeless elders in Ethiopia since 2008. We are currently renting a home for the homeless elders for which we are grateful to see lives saved and utterly changed. We have the official doucments that gives us ownership of land to build the future home for the homeless in Gojam, Debremarkos where we have done work for several years.   Building the future home will literally mean saving lives.   Our plan is to reach out to hundreds more by creating a safe place to live, feeding shelter to provide meal, create safe and clean place to spend time with others.  All and any support is greatly appreciated.  For more information for the work we do, please visit www.blreldercare.org.    
Their challenges are our opportunity!

We need your help!
We have done a lot to acquire the land. Now we must build the home. We are asking you to help us reach our goal to start the building project. As you can see in the attached pictures, we have put up a fence around the property. It is critical that we start the first phase of the building project so that we are not in jeopardy of missing the opportunity to provide home to the most destitute and deserving elders.
Help us bring the homeless home! Every dollar counts so please donate today.
Thank you for your generosity.

Every now and then, we all wonder about what it was that makes us who we are today. Then, we realize that it is the one chance, the one person or the one thing that gave us a gentle lift that pushed us out and above. Pass it on and be that someone to lend a hand today. There is no better gift than a gift of home. Help build a home to those in desperate need of a home. Thank you!
