Join Our Family

As the year comes to a close, we feel obligated to share with you, our extended Omo Child family some bittersweet news. The Omo Child Family continues to grow. Unfortunately, the age-old tradition of Mingi continues to be practiced in both the Hamer and the Banna tribes, which means more and more babies continue to be rejected and killed if the Omo Child team does not make it in time to save their precious lives.

Our family now has 46 children under the love and care of our heroic nannies. We are so grateful for each and every life in our home and care for each baby in particular.

Fortunately, our family has also been growing in supporters. As our work continues, it is crucial for our family of support (in and outside of Ethiopia) to grow too. We are asking YOU to join our family.

Further outreach… we are trying to END Mingi.


Our Work Is Far From Over


Mingi continues to be practiced in both the Hamer and the Banna tribes. As long as Mingi is still practiced, our family continues to grow.  This year-end our goal is to find just people like YOU to donate to support the care and feeding of the Omo Child Family.  We are asking you to take the leap— join the family and usher in a bright future for the children of our Omo Family.
