“There are over 100,000 children sleeping rough on the streets of Addis. Because of the recent growth and investment in the city, people from all over come to earn money.

“Unfortunately this includes children who work to send money home, who are TB or AIDS orphans and who were rejected by their parents. All of them are missing out on education and struggling to survive. The situation has been made worse by the recent droughts in the country.

“A lot of homeless children spend time at petrol stations. They wipe up spilt petrol with rags and breathe in the fumes to help reduce their hunger pangs. It is a heart-breaking situation.”
