Here are a few of the Charities that are making a difference for Children in Ethiopia:

    I don't think arab and Muslim are synonymous and portraying a muslim neigbourhood as arab can be misleading. The racial classification of some Ethiopian ethnicities as Arabic has been spurious and not adequatley proven. So the reference is misleading in context.
