On my second trip to Stand By Me's project in Bekoji, Ethiopia our team managed to build 20 beds for families who most needed them. Seeing the joy and gratitude such a simple thing brought to these amazing people was an eye opener to how blessed I am to have all that I do. This is another way to get involved and provide another family with that same joy! I'll be sleeping on the floor for a week starting on the 3rd of February to raise enough money for a bed for a family.
Stand by Me rescues kids from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. We care for 3,500 kids across the world, from Myanmar to Colombia to Ethiopia. No two are the same, some are orphaned, some abandoned, some abused or living in extreme poverty, so we take care to understand and meet each of their individual needs from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. We're in this for the long term, until they reach their potential, stand on their own two feet and become who they were created to be.
