Thousands of Jews in Ethiopia, who have waited decades to emigrate to Israel, live in mud huts with virtually no resources nor help from the worldwide Jewish community.
Now, the coronavirus pandemic has begun to spread in their communities. All ages — many with underlying health problems caused by chronic undernourishment and extremely limited access to health care — are at critically increased risk.
anJie ’s on-site partner in Ethiopia, SSEJ (Struggle to Save Ethiopian Jewry) — a 501(3)(c) U.S. registered charity — has urgently requested anJie’s help to raise funds to buy and distribute soap to limit the spread of the virus.
Soap is very expensive in Ethiopia – small bars (the most logistically practicable form) sell for about $.94, even in bulk. anJie is seeking to immediately raise at least $10,000 for SSEJ to buy a one-month minimal soap supply — small bars cut in half — for 1,850 Jewish families (14,000 people) in Gondar and Addis Ababa.
