First of all, a big thank you for your regular and spontaneous support!
15 individual girls with problems from different regions of Ethiopia , 250 students
from the Dewalka mountain school and numerous
sick people in the Ethiopian highlands
could and can be helped by you!
However, I would like to start with the sad
news that a few weeks ago we lost our dear
supporter and volunteer coordinator in
Ethiopia, Lemash, at the age of only 44 after
a serious illness. The extremely popular and
always helpful Lemash not only leaves a very
big gap in human terms. Our condolences to
her family, her husband and 3 young children.
This sad news of Lemash's death is part of the multitude of terrible events that have
repeatedly shaken Ethiopia in the recent past.
Nevertheless, JUMP was able to help without interruption, even during the hot phase of
the conflict, thanks to your support - and that makes us very proud! Even when the
UN, WHO and other big aid organizations temporarily left the country, we stayed in
In this context, it is astonishing how the conflict in Ethiopia is reported in our media
in Europe. Ethiopia is a complex country with complex problems, but few journalists
seem to take this into account. Many reports are more striking than well researched
