Setaweet, in collaboration with the Network of Ethiopian Women’s Associations (NEWA), Rotaract Club of Debo, and Global Shapers Addis Ababa Hub organized a campaign to help collect blankets and donate to women and girls in Tigray this June.

These donations were made at Effoi branches, LimeTree Bole, and Ghion hotel area branches as well as the Setaweet office. We were able to collect 99 blankets and raised 67,950 Birr through coupon sales through the work of amazing volunteers. We also accepted a sizable donation from St. Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College 153 blankets, gabis, gowns, and towels along with 147 thermoses.

This comes to 403 blankets!

These donations are on their way to Tigray through NEWA, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of women across Ethiopia. Our gratitude goes to our wonderful volunteers, our kind donors, and hosts during this campaign.
