Kidane Mehret Children’s Home

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Children at Kidane Mehret Children’s Home (KMCH) in Ethiopia are building a brighter future thanks to support from the Emirates Airline Foundation.

The care facility, located in Addis Ababa, is run by the Franciscan Sisters of the Heart of Jesus. It is home to 150 children, ranging in age from infants to teenagers.

The Emirates Airline Foundation is a long-time supporter of KMCH, when volunteers first started visiting the children in residence many years ago. Over the years, the Foundation has installed a playground, a learning centre featuring a computer lab and a library with over 4,000 books; plus completed many building renovations including the recent addition of a new, fully-equipped kitchen which opened in 2013.
