YEAR OF BIRTH: 1999
ABOUT: Amanuel has a killer smile, just like his little brother Abraham! He is an incredible athlete.
Amanuel is very kind and gentle, and is always the first to jump up and help anyone who needs help.
SIBLINGS: Bette, Abraham and Nardos
HISTORY: Amanuel's mother passed away from cancer and his father is unable to care for him, due to substance abuse. At eight years old, he and his younger sister, Bette, were sent to live with their aunt. She treated them as slaves, and did not allow them to attend school. Amanuel shined shoes and begged to help provide for himself and Bette. Their older brother, Dawit, found them and brought them back to Shalom, where he was being helped. They have lived there since 2011. One year later, his younger siblings, Abraham and Nardos, came to Shalom.
$180 a month is required to provide for Amanuel's basic needs, including food, school, medical and housing.
For $30 a month, you can be God's love to Amanuel by enabling Shalom to meet his physical, mental and spiritual needs. If you are able to/would like to cover more than a sixth of his monthly monetary needs ($60, $90, $120 or $150/month), you are more than welcome to do so!
