Jimma

Jimma is a rural town in west-central Ethiopia. It’s one of the major centers for coffee distribution gathered from growers all over the “Kaffa” region, from which the name coffeee is derived. The Daughters of Charity have been serving among people suffering from leprosy. Their suffering is dual: both the disease itself and the social isolation it provokes.
Despite everything, the kids still get a chatrge out of singing the Beatles, “Love me, Do!”
