Save Hannah

Hannah was born In East Africa to Her parents, Budel and Faisa.  Recently,  Hannah was diagnosed with Severe Pulmonary Hyper Tension, but it is not conclusive what is causing this condition.  Her physicians in Ethiopia all agree that she needs the kind of care that cannot be found in Ethiopia.   She needs testing, professional consults and surgery to save her life.  Her parents are devastated but are trying to hold their family together through faith and prayer. 
Our organization ( has partnered with Budel for 9 years.  He is an amazing leader in Ethiopia and has impacted 1000's of lives.  Our work would not be possible without him.    

It is our turn to help Budel by providing the funds and needed care for his precious daughter.   Our intention is to obtain free medical care for Hannah, which is already in motion.  We are so thankful for the medical community and their willingness to help.   In addition to the medical care Hannah needs, the family will need wrap around services such as;  transportation, medicines, room and board,  and care for their young family while Budel and Faisa travel with Hannah. 

This situation is urgent!  The US Embassy will not grant a VISA until we can show all expenses are covered.  The sooner we have the funds raised, the sooner we can expedite their VISAS and Hannah can get the care she needs. 

Hannah is a sweet little one year old girl who has brought so much joy to her family.  They love her and would be devastated if they lost her.  Life is already quite difficult for this young family in Ethiopia.  Would you consider helping us bring a miracle to Budel, Faisa, and their children;  Nemo(11),  Sarah(9) and Hannah?
