Lola Children’s Fund provides financial assistance to Lola Children’s Home, a community program in Mekelle, Ethiopia. Lola Children’s Home offers services to HIV-affected children and families. A residential program houses children with nowhere else to live. A day care program offers schooling, food and shelter during the day for children whose parents would be unable to care for them during the day. An outreach program provides funds for food, educational materials, clothing and medication for kids who need a little extra financial assistance. Lola offers mother’s grants to seven mothers in the community, providing them with funds to start their own businesses and hopefully become self-sufficient enough to care for their children so that they don’t have to be separated.
