The Hailemariam & Roman Foundation provided 375 quintals of maize flour and 5700 liters of cooking oil to 2500 students at five public primary schools in the Turmi city administration as well as Hamer and Bena Tsemay Woredas owing to funding from the China Foundation for Rural Development (CFRD) and Lingshan Charitable Foundation.

The Woreda administrators and parents of students who spoke about the support in the event recalled that their children had access to school meals in the schools they attended throughout the academic year and expressed their sincere gratitude for the foundation’s contribution to ensure that this support continued when the schools were closed for the summer.

While delivering the support in the towns of Dimeka and Key Afer in the South Omo Zone, H.E. Roman Tesfaye, the former First Lady of the FDRE and CEO of the HRF, expressed her profound gratitude to the Lingshan Foundation for its donation and reliable partnership. She went on by urging other nonprofit organizations in the vicinity to contribute their part.
