Our AHOPE family mourns the loss of Haileab Gutema. Haileab came to AHOPE when he was 10 years old and was one of our earliest graduates from our program. When he left, he went to pursue a career as a DJ. We are devastated by his death at the age of 24. Haileab suffered from a re-occurrence of TB, along with managing the difficulties of an autoimmune disease during these dangerous times of COVID in Ethiopia. Our love and support goes out to his brothers, sisters and caregivers at AHOPE, Ethiopia. May his memory be a blessing to all who love and mourn him.
