Story from Waghimra

Mrs. Aregash Belay and her husband, Mr. Desalegn Negusse, are residents of 07 Kebele Sekota Zuria Woreda. This family has suffered a lot they have lost their 13, Year old son. We met them, during a small ruminant distribution at Hammusit Market.

They have farmland however their productivity wasn’t that much, so Mr. Desalegn travelled to Addis Ababa and began working at low wages to cope with the economic pressures in 2012 E.C. In the absence of her husband, raising eight children was Mrs. Aregash’s responsibility. Mrs. Aregash couldn’t continue the agricultural work that they were doing before, so she rented out the land. She gets half of the production in return.

As soon as the war calmed down Mr. Desalegn returned to his family. At the time banks were not open; this situation challenged them to use the limited amount of money he brought with him.

Sport for Mental Health

In refugee and IDP camps, youth face mental health challenges like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and addiction. These individuals have often experienced traumatic events; lack of education and job opportunities, leading to feelings of depression and hopelessness, which can contribute to mental health issues.

Sports help to build stronger, healthier, and more resilient communities. It is not only an excellent way to stay physically fit; it also provides significant psychological benefits. It helps to improve your mood and moderate stress. It has benefits for conflict-affected communities in promoting physical and mental health, social integration, cohesion, education, and development.

Considering the challenges facing young people and the need to contribute to the protection of conflict-affected people through sport, former football player Semon Negusu volunteers to coach youth living in the China IDP site (one of the EOTC DICAC intervention areas), Deber Berhan Town. He began his work by having a deep conversation with the youth who are vulnerable to addiction and mental health issues and convincing them to engage in sports activities. Then he organized two teams (under 16 and 17 years old). He coaches each team three days a week.
