In Ethiopia, ABM works with the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa, which is one of four dioceses of the Episcopal/Anglican Church in the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East.
The Diocese covers a vast area - Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Somalia and Djibouti – with over 100 congregations and seeks to continue to build bridges within local communities through their message of hope and practical concern and care.
To this end, the church offers opportunities for people to meet together, activities for youth, literacy classes, basic health education and medical care especially for women and children, and care for the many refugees flooding into Egypt and Ethiopia.
ABM has funded projects in Ethiopia since 2008 and also provided emergency humanitarian assistance in late 2013 for South Sudanese refugees.
