Resom and Dawit 

With the generous support of the 8th-Day Faith Community and citizens, CALM was able to establish in 2008 “Project TG (Teklit and Genet)” to help child landmine survivors in Ethiopia. At the moment, Project TG supports two child landmine survivors. However, there are many more victims of explosive remnants of war hopelessly confined in their homes. In one small border village alone (T/Adiabo- Gemhalo), there are over twenty child landmine survivors. Their ages range from 9 - 14. Project TG wishes to add two nine year olds, Resom and Dawit, to its program. Resom and Dawit are from Gemhalo, a remote border village between Ethiopia and Eritrea.  

The total expense for each child for a year including rehabilitation, education, transport and other related expenses is estimated to be $700. Therefore, CALM aims to raise a sum of $1400.00 for the two kids. We are counting on citizens generous support in this economically challenging time. Your kind financial gift will change the lives of Resom and Dawit for good, as it did for Teklit and Genet.
