The Entoto Foundation is dedicated to helping Ethiopians gain access to medical care and treatment. With only 1 doctor for every 40,000 people, Ethiopians have little or no access to medical care that most people would consider "basic." The money we raise helps pay for critical medical equipment, supplies, and medicine as well as the training of health care personnel in Ethiopia. When essential medical procedures or treatments are not available within Ethiopia, the Entoto Foundation provides funds and logistical support for patients to obtain health care abroad.
The Entoto Foundation operates with a highly dedicated, all-volunteer staff. We also have a sponsor who helps pay for fundraising and other miscellaneous expenses. Nearly 100% of your contributions go to those people we have pledged to help!
