Behind each gift, there are people with hopes and dreams who deserve to live a life with dignity just like Jasmine. She is a refugee living in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa after she was forced to flee her home because of war. As a mother, all she desperately wants is to be able to support her kids. She shared:
“What I pray is that God will help me get a good life, that I can work, I can have my own income and that I can live in peace in order to continue supporting my family.”
Your Gifts for Peace help people like Jasmine who today attends a sewing class five days a week to develop skills to support her family.
¹Jasmine’s name has been changed to protect her identity.
