Awet was in high school when we started helping his family in 2017. These days, he is doing great things in college but is also working a ton to help support his mom and four siblings in West Philadelphia. The whole family arrived as refugees from Eritrea in 2015. Part of “helping” his family was trying to find, and afford, a reliable car. Both for work and for day to day responsibilities.
In early 2021, Charity in Action was able to step up (because we have great donors) and buy Awet the car he needed to make things happen. We are happy to be able to continue helping Awet and his family, and look forward to doing more!
