The holidays come upon us, and are too soon gone. With them, though, is a chance to reflect on the year that passed and what matters most. We are particularly grateful to the large and growing number of people who, through trips to Addis or by giving from Toronto, have expanded their circle of care all the way to Ethiopia, and with that, contributed to making many people well.
