Gondar – Just a Drop’s 1st Project!

Gonder, Ethiopia projectIn November 1998, Just a Drop partnered with the British Red Cross in North Gondar, Ethiopia to deliver our first projects, installing wells and running community health programmes. Fiona Jeffery, Just a Drop’s founder, says:

“My first visit to Gondar provided me with a sense of wonder from the lush, green landscape to the warm and friendly welcome I received. Nevertheless, the unnecessary loss of life – from entirely treatable diseases such as dysentery, diarrhoea and cholera – left me determined to do something and it is this that has kept me going over the years.”

Beneficiaries: 30,000 (estimate)
