Mission Statement

The mission of the Blue Nile Children's Organization is focused on the four greatest needs of Ethiopia's children and their mothers. The first is the sponsorship program that supports orphans in foster care with local families. The second is the Richard Oslund Memorial Clinic whose purpose is to provide pre/post natal care and birthing assistance for mothers and infants in the Kolfe sub-city of Addis Abba. Third is the vaccination program focused on all residents of the Kolfe area to help eradicate those diseases that have ravaged the population of Ethiopia. And finally to cooperate with western universities in their training and research programs that will help train the clinic's medical personal and enhance the services that are offered to the local population.

Description

Blue Nile Children's Organization has 2 functions.

The first is the placement of orphans in foster care in 2 regions of Ethiopia, Addis Abba and Bahar Dar. The foster children are funded through our US foster parents at $30 per month per child.

The second function has built a medical clinic in Kolfe Keranio sub-city of Addis Ababa, the poorest neighborhood of the city. We will serve 250 people per week for vaccines, as well as a special focus on women and infants. Blue Nile has 10 community health workers educating the local population in basic health.
