Help a family of six blind people

Merigeta Zerabruk Hailu is completely blind and all his children are also unable to see.  He raised his kids by working hard, without relying on anyone’s help. There are six blind people in the family. The only one who can see is the mother but she is sick and she herself needs support.  Since Merigeta Zerabruk is getting old, he needs our help. As the saying goes, “being human is enough to help human beings.” The different religious scriptures also encourage us to help the poor/weak and save treasures for us in heaven.  As Winston Churchill said we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Helping others is one of the key things for a happy and fulfilling life. Therefore, let’s help this family with what we can.

Update: gofundme asked me to  add a clear explanation of how I know the beneficiary/ies and also a clear plan on how I intend to deliver the donations. So here are the details:

I know the benficiaries through a TV program that was prepared by Mulu Hailesslassie (https://www.facebook.com/mulu.haileslassie)
, who has hosted  many programs where he helped people with many health problems. One of them is (https://www.gofundme.com/help-mama-shashu)
.
So, I created this campaign to collect money and send it to him  so that he can send the money to the beneficiaries.  I plan to send him via moneygram.
