When the Lalibela Project began there was no infrastructure in place and SUPPLEMENTARY INCOME was delivered on foot and in cash. Now the recipients all have bank accounts, and the income is deposited directly. They are able to save money and that helped many to get through the COVID-19 lockdown and the occupation of the city during the civil conflict
Message from Kevin and Patricia “Patty” Brabazon who co-founded the Lalibela Fund: “We funded the Lalibela Project through the COVID-19 lockdown, the occupation of the city during the civil conflict, and one year with no electricity. Join us and together we can bring love, hope, and change to many people who desperately need them. And, “Yes”, we can make these programs sustainable. For change to be truly meaningful, it must be permanent.”
The Lalibela Fund uses an intergenerational approach to social work and social development based on the three-generational family as advocated by GENERATIONS UNITED (gu.org).
