Remember a Charity Week 11-17 September

Remembering a charity in your Will can be a powerful way to ensure that your estate continues to help the most vulnerable, after you are no longer around.  Legacies allow charities, like Ethiopiaid, to support the causes that are most important to you for generations to come.

Legacies have the power to transform lives in Ethiopia and create long term positive change.

Legacies have:

·         funded the establishment of Hope College of Business, Science and Technology. Since then thousands of undergraduates from impoverished backgrounds have graduated with their degrees and can look forward to a better future.

·         helped to fund the building of REED House for our partner Cheshire Services. The facility provides space for physiotherapy and rehabilitation clinics for children living with disabilities and is one of the only such services in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Ministry of Health recently recognised Cheshire Services as a centre of excellence.

·         enabled us to respond quickly to emergencies. In response to the ongoing East Africa Crisis we were able to support our partner APDA who works in the remote Afar region. We were able to provide £300,000, which funded emergency food, water trucking and sanitation, and livestock support for the most vulnerable families (who could not reach aid distribution points).

Writing your Will is an incredibly important and personal experience and we understand that it can be difficult to think about. To help you give the decision the consideration it deserves, we have put together a guide to legacy giving, which will help you through the process. To request your free copy of our guide ‘The Greatest Gift’ please get in touch.

We hope that you would like to see us to continue our work in the future and that, once you have looked after your friends and family, you will consider including Ethiopiaid in your Will
