From Wisconsin, With Love

“The younger generation recognizes its responsibility to act together, to do something,” states Mr. Allen C. Buhler of Racine, Wis.

“After the death of our youngest child, my family and I wanted to do something good, and to remember Mary Ann.”

Mr. and Mrs. Buhler have provided a generous grant to complete a structure and install water, electricity and basic medical equipment for a medical clinic in a very poor neighborhood in Addis Ababa.

Now named the Mary Ann clinic, one of its priorities is public toilets, which would replace the existing trenches. Much of the neighborhood’s high mortality rate can be attributed to raw sewage.

The Buhler children have pledged monthly maintenance grants in 1994 for the clinic’s basic operating costs. Many thanks for the Buhler family’s generosity!
