Feeding Program and Medical Clinic

During our recent trip to Soddo to visit the CCC Children’s Home, we spent one day at Wolaitta Village conducting a feeding program and medical clinic.  We provided 137 families each with 10 kilos of wheat and provided medical care to 100 people.

Ten churches in the Soddo area chose the most needy of their families to come to the feeding program.  Some families walk over three hours to get to the Wolaitta Village.

Following are pictures from the day.
