Ethiopia: Sustaining Life

[Addis Fortune]Shelter is among the many things Ethiopia's street children long for. Local non-governmental organizations and community organizations rarely offer what the street children want. As the result people living in the streets around Ras Desta Memorial Hospital use the concrete-made pipes now strething in the pedestrian area for road construction as shelters. There are about 30,000 street children in Ethiopia, with 17,000 in Addis Abeba, alone. More than half of these kids do not have access to shelter.
