World Renew began working in Ethiopia in 1984 as part of a joint Canadian Foodgrains Bank response to the famine and drought that affected thousands of families in Ethiopia in the early 1980s.
While never having an office in Ethiopia, World Renew has developed a strong network of partnerships with local churches and other Christian organizations who implement projects.
Since 2007, World Renew has provided $18 million in assistance to over 272,000 people in Ethiopia. Much of this is made possible because of the generous support from donors in North America, and Global Affairs Canada.
Today, World Renew is working to improve the education, health and livelihoods opportunities for 1,400 orphans and children affected by HIV and AIDS. Each month, children and their families receive food assistance, and have access to medical treatment and community training workshops.
