    HAF is a foundation dedicated to provide financial support to disadvantaged Harari elders in Ethiopia, for those who are over the age of 50 with ZERO income or support.

    Currently, HAF is providing 1000.00 ETB monthly allowance to 320+ RECIPIENTS in HARAR, DIRE DAWA, ADDIS ABABA, HARAMAYA, KOMBOLCHA and DEDER, to help them with their basic day-to-day necessities.

    despair among our Harari elders, Insha’Allah (God willing).


    In 2005, a group of friends/families based in Atlanta, GA,
    started to provide financial support to needy Harari elders in
    Ethiopia, once a year during the month of Ramadan (fasting
    In summer of 2017, the group managed to distribute
    180,000.00ETB to 180 families, in person. This personal visit
    allowed them to witness the horrible living conditions of our
    Harari elders. It also made them realize that the help they
    have been providing once a year was inadequate to make
    any significant positive change. They came back to Atlanta
    determined and committed to find solutions to this urgent
