Pray – God is the driving force behind everything we do in Strong Hearts, and none of this would exist without his power and working. Please pray that God continues working in wonderful ways through this organization. If you would like up to date prayer requests, you can check out our blog or contact us for more information.

Donate Supplies – If you would like to donate items we need for our various programs, it is best to bring them in conjuction with a trip to our area, as you can bring in your luggage. However, if you aren’t planning a trip to Ethiopia, you can send by mail (DHL, FedEx preferred; post office accepted but less secure) to the following address:

Getinet Teferi
PO Box 24023
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

You can email for additional information on how to ship. If you are looking for a more cost-effective method to send supplies, please contact Betty at to make arrangements.
