Photos: Addis Holiday for the Homeless 2006

This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of participating in a large volunteer event called Addis Holiday Lunch for the Homeless. Now in its fourth year, the Holiday Lunch takes place during three major holidays: Easter, New Year, and Christmas. Each timenearly 100 volunteers descend upon St. Joseph’s School in Addis Ababa and hand out free lunches and donated clothing to thousands of homeless citizens.

(For a fascinating explanation of Ethiopian New Year and why they are still partying like it’s 2006, head on over to my friend Rachel’s page here.)

There’s not much to say about the event, but I did want to share some of the best images for your viewing pleasure:
