Mickias is a 7-year-old boy who resides in the northern part of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia with his father, mother, and brother. The rugged, mountainous area is densely populated with very old, and run-down homes. People struggle to make a living, doing odd jobs for little wages.
He feels very fortunate to have a supportive family and likes to help out at home by cleaning the house. Like many children across the globe, he enjoys playing with his best friend, Eires, and looks forward to their biggest holiday celebration which is the New Year.
Mickias is enrolled in his 2nd year at school and loves English. Recently he has been working on verbs. When he grows up, he hopes to become a pilot so that he can get to know all of the world.
The money raised by ChildFund will help him thrive, providing education materials, school uniforms, health care services, and improving the overall livelihood of him directly, his guardians, and the entire community.
