Review for Angel Covers, Broomfield, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I were working to Adopt an Ethiopian Orphan girl from Addis Ababa iin Ethiopia. In November 2010 we flew out for a court date and to meet our little girl. There we found terrible poverty and 50+ orphans living in an orphanage under crowded and less than ideal sanitary conditions.

I left my wife there to wait for the completion of the adoption process, and returned to the USA, with plans to return soon to collect my wife and child.

Once home, I wanted to do something for the orphans I would not be returning with. Soon I was in contact with Angel Covers, and within a week I had 52 blankets, one for each of the orphans at the Orphanage.

The blankets were of various types, some strong and plain, some delicate and hand made.

The owner of the orphanage was most grateful for the assistance, but he did state the number of orphans had declined in the passing months to approximately 45

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Role:  Volunteer & I carried as many blankets as I possibly could to the orphans of Ethiopia in my luggage.
