Dramatic Photos Show How Rough Life Is In Addis Ababa

Ethiopia is one of the oldest civilizations in existence but it has been a symbol for poverty, hunger and human struggle in modern times.

The Lelt Foundation, a non-profit helping impoverished Ethiopian families and vulnerable youth pull themselves out of poverty, shared with us some dramatic photos of what daily life is like in the capital Addis Ababa.

While some parts of the city show signs of economic development with glossy high-rises and construction sites of condominiums, most of Addis Ababa is in wretched condition.

The Lelt Foundation is currently competing with other charities for votes in Cultivate Wine’s competition “The Give,” which awards a $50,000 grant to the most popular organization.
