SPONSOR FOR $39
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Mekides’s father disappeared before she was even born, and no one knows if he is still alive or not. This left Mekides and her siblings in the sole care of their mother, whose only income is generated by washing clothes for people. Thankfully, Mekides is a healthy girl and is currently in the fifth grade at a local community school.
Mekides lives in the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa. Amharic is the main language spoken in this area.
