Embrace Compassion was established in 2011 with several families pulling together for the purpose of meeting one need at a time in Ethiopia.
The focus of Embrace Compassion is three fold:
- Support and encourage Americans living in Ethiopia who are giving their lives to serve in Jesus’ name
- Offer child sponsorship and family preservation which brings hope and wholeness to an entire community
- Tackle one large project at a time such as our first project, clean water
