Happy New Year from Retrak Ethiopia

By Joan Townsend | Executive Director, Retrak America

Happy Holidays from Retrak Ethiopia
Happy Holidays from Retrak Ethiopia

At this time of year, getting through the daily struggle for survival and feeling of isolation becomes even tougher for children living on the streets. While the festive season for many of us is a special time to be shared at home with our loved ones, for homeless children, it is a reminder of two of the greatest gaps missing in their lives – home and family.

Fortunately Retrak is present on the streets of Addis Ababa, providing homeless children with their basic needs, and helping them return to a loving family.

One child in Retrak's program in Addis Ababa told us, "We are thankful for letting us escape from such a dark life to such a bright one."

Thank you for your past support of Retrak's project in Ethiopia. We hope that you'll decide to support us again with an end-of-year donation --a donation that will help a homeless child receive safe shelter, nourishing food, medical attention and care and support. In many cases it will return a street child to a loving family home. Please help us return more children home in 2016.
