COMMUNITY OUTREACH

ESFNA strives for outreach to the community both in North America and Ethiopia

Famine Relief

With one of the worst famines to date, ESFNA has pledged to donate $100,000 to relief efforts in Ethiopia. It is estimated that about 14 million people are affected by the drought. We urge all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia to collectively come to the aid of the country in averting what is labeled as the worst famine in the history of the country and continent.

ESFNA has selected Catholic Relief Services (CRS) after an exhausting review of 18 potential organizations that are expertise in the famine relief services area. This does not necessarily mean that ESFNA will not partner or work with other organizations. In fact, it will also focus its efforts in partnering with local NGOs in Ethiopia in the near future.

Flood Donation

Members and Friends of ESFNA are deeply saddened by the extensive damage the recent floods have inflicted in Eastern Ethiopia. It is in times like this we put aside our differences and pull together to help the victims of this colossal tragedy.

ESFNA has donated $20,000.00 to be used by a non-governmental organization to deliver much needed assistance to the flood victims of the Omo region.

ESFNA has also created a separate bank account to solicit funds to this effort and already donations have been collected outside of ESFNA funds. As the funds come in, we will list the names of contributors to this effort. God bless the flood victims of Ethiopia.

HIV/AIDS PROGRAM

HIV/AIDS is ravaging our country at an alarming rate. It is a tragedy affecting our country and our people at the core. It is our existence that is at stake. HIV/AIDS is shortening the lives of thousands of our brothers and sisters and creating a growing orphan population, homelessness and many other tragic consequences that are adversely affecting millions of Ethiopians.

Recognizing the need, ESFNA decided to take part and contribute what it can in combating this dreadful epidemic. During our 2004 tournament in Seattle, we collected $10,000.00 and we are looking for an organization that best fits our selection criteria and that can best use the funds in this endeavor.
