Yakob’s Dad is 38 years old. He and his wife live together with their 3 children. Dad was working as a daily laborer until he was diagnosed a couple of years ago with a sickness that leaves him unable to work. Since he can not work, this leaves his family in desperate need since they are unable to pay their rent and unable to afford food. Now with EHE’s help, Dad is undergoing ongoing treatment, family supports and his children are receiving an education.
Yakob attends the Embracing Hope School. His younger sister Tsion is also part of the Embracing Hope. Yakob enjoys helping out at home, looking at books, and playing with cars. His favorite food is meat!
