Ethiopia, like many developing countries, is lacking in many of the amenities taken for granted in the first world. Clinic at a Time is a group devoted to helping people in Ethiopia gain access to basic health care services and education. You can learn more about them on their site, or their Facebook page.
They will be holding an event in Lawrenceville, GA next month, Saturday May 18th. Anyone can donate, and people in the Atlanta area can attend. Find more information here, and ask them questions directly on the Facebook page they set up for the event.
The event will include an auction with things like artwork, tickets to entertaining venues, and Teff! 100% of proceeds will help them to reach their goal, the construction of a birthing center in Bichena, Ethiopia.
