Transforming lives in Ethiopia

Leave a Gift in your Will

I am incredibly grateful to our supporters who have the foresight to leave us a gift in their Will. However big or small, a legacy gift is the most effective way of making a lasting difference. It is an invaluable source of income that enables Ethiopiaid to plan ahead and broaden our impact.

Our guide to leaving a gift in your Will

Writing your Will is an incredibly important and personal experience. We recognise it can be difficult to think about. To help you through this, we have put together a guide which you can download for free.

Our Will Writing Partners

Ethiopiaid has partnered with two leading Will writing charity specialists, for you to write or update your Will.

Whether you want to write your Will online, over the telephone or in your own home they can provide support and advice.


We have partnered with Farewill, the UK’s number 1 online Will writing service, covering the costs so you can write your Will for free.

Visit the Farewill website to complete your Will online free of charge, using the voucher code ETHLET at check-out. Alternatively, you can arrange a telephone appointment.

The Goodwill Partnership

The Goodwill Partnership provides home-visit solicitor-provided Wills in England and Wales. 

They make the process of making your Will extremely simple. There are no visits to the solicitor; their trained counsellor comes to your home to take your Will instructions at a time convenient to you. 

Disclaimer: Please note that these Will writing services are provided by third party organisations who are independent of Ethiopiaid.  By participating in any of the Will writing services, you become a direct client of the will provider.  Ethiopiaid reserves the right to withdraw these Will services.

What legacies have achieved

Funded initial costs for our partner Hope of Light.

Founded by Hamlin-trained fistula surgeon Dr Ambaye, legacies from Ethiopiaid helped kickstart the fistula centres in Jima and Gondar while Ethiopiaid launched a fundraising appeal on their behalf.

Provided one-off small grants to small NGOs who share our values and approach.

This allows Ethiopiaid to extend our reach across Ethiopia to the most vulnerable communities, making a significant impact and funding organisations that might otherwise not be able to access funding from international grant makers. 

Enabled us to respond swiftly to emergencies without having to wait to launch a public appeal.

In response to the ongoing East Africa Crisis, we were able to support our partner APDA who works in the remote Afar region. We provided £300,000 towards emergency food, water trucking and sanitation, and livestock support for vulnerable families unable to reach aid distribution points.
