EHA Board Members went to Boston, MA in the middle of the worst winter storm of 2015 to secure medical equipment and supplies for Negele Arsi Hospital. The coldest weather was matched only by the warmest hearts.

Mission Results

  • gardens and farming

Returning to the places I knew growing up — and now as an EHA volunteer — was a very humbling experience. While it was certainly good to come home, it was also sobering to see how many in our community still need help and medical care. A hospital close to home would save many lives. This trip to Boston to secure much-needed medical equipment is an important step in making our dreams become reality.
