About Us

HOLISTIC MINISTRY OF CHILDREN OF THE HORN OF AFRICA

HMCHA was founded by Ethiopian refugee Megersa Kumbi and his wife Abby Dalu in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2007. We are a non-denominational Christian organization working with extremely poor families in Oromia, Ethiopia.

OUR MISSION

As a non-denominational Christian organization, the Holistic Ministry of Children of the Horn of Africa helps children in Ethiopia rise out of poverty through education and mentoring.  Sponsored children and their families are supported economically and spiritually while they are empowered to achieve and strive to create change in their lives and communities while growing in their faith. 

The goal of sponsorship is to help students graduate, prepared to support their own families and contribute to society.

OUR VALUES

Commitment to our mission

We are a passionate team that seeks to meet challenges and creatively grow as community needs arise.

Faith in Christ

Through faith in Christ, we understand that we can change the world. Every child and family can have hope for the future as we work together to build relationships that sustain our work.

Community

We develop respectful relationships and understand that listening to the community’s needs and ideas, and supporting self-sufficiency help realize the full potential of all.  We value work that will last and that creates sustainable change.
