The hat-knitting campaign for newborns has been very successful. Through practical help people’s interest and awareness towards Ethiopian development problems has increased.

As this is a highly potential area of assistance, the NGO Damota has undertaken to develop those contacts as our first priority and is currently planning of the first special project is underway.
