A new mogogo!
Thanks to your precious donations we have built a mogogo for a new family: as you know it is very important for us to ensure the women of many rural villages a safe and healthy environment in which to cook and prepare a meal for their children.
The new ecological oven was built with the help of the beneficiary family and the women of the village who, having learned the technique, will in turn be able to replace the old oven which, having not channeled out and thus trapping the harmful fumes in the home, it was dangerous and harmful to the health of the family.
As a gesture of gratitude and gratitude, the beneficiary family has prepared coffee and engera for all, thus inaugurating the new mogogo.
Our commitment is not stopped here: there are still many families who are forced to live in houses blackened by the fumes of the ovens and that every day they travel long distances to collect wood.
While the conditions of life are precarious, on the other hand the historic peace agreement between the Eritrean President, Isaias Afwerki, and the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, gives hope for a possible improvement. After 20 years of war, which began in 1998 due to some border disputes over the control of the city of Badme, the two countries affirm in a joint declaration: "they will work to embrace political, economic, social, cultural and security cooperation" In addition, "restored links in transport, trade and telecommunications" and "renewed ties and diplomatic activities".
We hope that words really are a turning point for both countries and a first step towards a real improvement!
coffee for all
A hug of peace!
