The influx of migrants and refugees to Germany and uncertainty among donors after the death of Dr. Karlheinz Bohm, were two major reasons the Foundation Menschen fur Menschen was inactive in Ethiopia for the last few years, a spokesperson for the organization said.
The Chairman of the Foundation’s Board Christian Ude, said that despite the challenges they are now well equipped to continue their work in Ethiopia.
“We had some thirsty times, it is true. The last years were not the best years in the history of Menschen fur Menschen. In the 80s and 90s, Menschen fur Menschen was nearly the only organization supporting poor countries in Africa. That has considerably changed now as there are many more organizations doing the work too and that is competition,” Ude said.
He further stated that now the situation has changed and the organization has financial stability and will carry out developmental activities in the region with a budget of over 298 million birr.
“Donations have increased by 11 percent in the last year so the crisis we had is over, Ude asserted.
The Menschen fur Menschen Foundation has an integrated rural approach; Sustainable Land Management, Education, Health, Water and Hygiene (WASH), Human Development and Infrastructure. Among the Foundation’s activities for the current year is the training of 7,491 farmers on improved and appropriated sustainable land management techniques, providing access to educational services, by building 20 schools for a total of 20,000 students as well as constructing clean water systems through 159 water points and one rural town’s water supply.
The Foundation also plans to reduce health risks, especially preventable diseases through providing immunization to 32,600 children and 139,100 women in cooperation with government’s health institutions. Furthermore to strengthen the economic and social status of women and increase their contribution to development on the community level, credit associations will be supported to benefit 5,014 members.
