WEEMA Receives Top Award in Kembata-Tembaro
The WEEMA team is thrilled to be honored recently by the Kembata-Tembaro Zone Administration as its top nongovernmental community partner.
The award, announced last week at the Kembata-Tembaro Zone’s Cultural, Historic and Language Symposium in Durame, recognizes WEEMA’s wide-ranging contributions to improved clean water access, healthcare, and educational opportunities over the past eight years. Amanuel Abebo, WEEMA’s Project Coordinator in Kembata-Tembaro, accepted the award on behalf of WEEMA.
The plaque reads: “This award is given to WEEMA International for its dedication in the development endeavors of strengthening hospitals through medical equipment support, building and equipping public libraries, establishing and fulfilling early grade kindergarten schools and addressing community needs via potable water supplies.”
