Red Letters campaign- Formula and Diaper Drive

We had an agency conference call today. There is a need for diapers and formula. We were told that at the orphanage where our son is at (not our agency's Transition Home, it's full) is at risk of running out and resorting to cow's milk. You know that made my mommy heart tremble! SOOOOO I will be sure to send some formula with the next travel group and stock up on some for when we go so that no children will be without. If you live locally you know what I am going to ask next don't you?!

Please, if you can purchase a can of formula or some diapers we would be thrilled to take them with us when we go. You can email me at and I would be happy to pick them up. Thanks!!

I think it would be easier to sent money. But that is just me.

That's what I thought too, Lenka, but they don't ask for money. The only thing I can assume is that inflation there makes it cheaper to get the items here. I know inflation has rocketed up. Some say over 300% So maybe that's the reason.

When I asked Duni about this in the CC she responded that there is no formula in Addis to buy! We need to send it because the black market is the only place they can find it right now.

:0( Sending 4 cans through the Lusse family. Do you want me to write "SLONIGER" in big black marker on the label :0)

I left a comment once but it didn't take. So anyway, I originally said that I was going to email you this morning and ask what I could bring to donate to the orphanage but I guess God already knew and was preparing my heart!
