We are very excited to announce that Kara tribal elders have offically ended the practice of Mingi in their tribe today, July 14th. There was a large ceremony held in Dus Village today to offically end the practice. Both of our Omo Child founders attended the ceremony. We will post pictures and deatils about today’s historic event as soon as we receive them back here in the US. It’s important to note, that even though tremendous progress was made today in the Omo Valley, there are still 45,000 Hamar people that still practice Mingi. We are committed to seeing Mingi eliminated in the Omo Valley, and will continue to raise awareness. Most importantly, we have 37 beautiful children living in our OMO CHILD shelter that need YOUR donations and support. Please help us continue to help the children and continue our mission to eliminate Mingi in the Omo Valley.
