Catholic Mission seeks help for Ethiopian clinics

The Australian arm of the Catholic Church's global mission aid agency has launched a Christmas appeal to provide for medicines and food for the children of the Ethiopian region of Awassa.

Catholic Mission funds 13 health clinics and a hospital which are staffed by Sisters of different orders.

Initiatives such as mother and child programs and feeding programs have been set up to cater for children who have been affected by malnourishment and disease.

While the agency is a Catholic organisation, any child in need regardless of religious affiliation, race, sex or cultural traditions is helped.

All donations extend to helping the community as a whole.
