Crime affects entire families in different ways in different countries. When parents commit a crime in Ethiopia, they and their children are jailed together if someone is not available to care for the children.
One of the focus areas of Meserete Kristos Church’s Prison Ministry addresses the basic needs of these children — some of the nation’s most vulnerable.
A ministry team led by Yosef Haile visited Fitche Prison on May 23 to provide new clothes and school materials for children. Hygiene materials and financial support were also shared with inmates, especially female prisoners.
