From the Tamara Lackey Blog: Beautiful Together Feeding Fund is grateful to partner with Life To Live for Korah, working to feed the children in Korah, Ethiopia.

These are definitely some rough visuals, no doubt – but as our team strips the bathroom of what the children at this orphanage have been using for years, we are thrilled about the simple dignity of clean, new bathroom fixtures. After all is torn out and the new equipment is installed, we can move on […]
