2016 Aged 18
Betelhem is the sister of Bimrew. Both have to use wheelchairs. They both applied last year and we accepted Bimrew but not Betelhem. They are orphans and still live in the gift shop in return for looking after the shop.
The money to Bimrew has made a big difference to their lives. Money to Betelhem would let them rent their own house.
Betelhem has an ambition to become a nurse and help those in the same position as her. She was 12th. in her class in the grade 5 exams and is now in grade 6.
It has been agreed to support her with 600 Birr per month.
