Omo Child rescues and cares for Mingi children located in the Omo River Valley region of Southwest Ethiopia. Omo Child’s Mission is to stop Mingi, the ritualistic killing of infants and children, and to provide education and a safe, nurturing shelter for rescued children. These children will be future leaders in their tribes and communities. Our immediate goal is to raise money to care for our 37 children that have already been rescued and need food, shelter and education. On July 14th, due in large part to the efforts of Lale Labuko and John Rowe, the Kara Tribe held a ceremony that officially ended Mingi in their culture. Immediately following the ceremony John and Lale reflected on the day's historic event.
