My name is Ayandis Asmare. I am pharmacy technician & a student of bachelor  in pharmacy. I work with HDAMA in the health center known as Tsere Woba Luxembourg health center located at Bahir Dar. I am married and have one child.I am really proud to tell about my story. How interesting is telling my story after having passed the challenging obstacles I have faced.

 I was born in 1989   in West Gojjam Zone Burie Woreda a small town called Kuch.  I was in 5th grade when I met the first time Mr Abere Mihretie the executive director and founder of Heath Development and Anti Malaria Association (HDAMA) the then “Anti Malaria Association”. 

I remember that he came to Kuch with journalists. The director of the school came to our class and asked our teacher to let the orphans go out. We went out and met others who came from other classes. I do not know how much we were. But it was a very huge number. As I was among the shortest kids, I was in the first row. The journalist approached to me focusing the camera on me and asked me who I am and where I live.  I told my name and I said that I was living with my uncle because my father and my mother died due to malaria and started crying. Everybody was crying.

Years later, it was in 2005, I was a 9th grade night program student with my sister because we have failed in day time program due to the hardship we were facing.  Mr Abere came to meet us. I was very afraid.  He promised us that he will support us. He bought us immediately clothes and went back. We then started receiving supports every month. A year after, we have joined the HDAMA OVC support. When we finished tenth grade, Mr Abere has got me a scholarship from GAMBY medical college to continue my studies in pharmacy.  My sister has joined as well and the college fee was covered by our uncle.  But the survival and other expenses were covered by HDAMA and Mr Abere.

After having graduated, I joined HDAMA in a project on HIV/AIDS in Burie town. Then, I came to be an Employee in Tsere Woba Luxembourg.

This is thus to inform the reader that this could not happen without the intervention of Mr Abere Mihretie and HDAMA. Thanks to them that I am now a very good citizen with a happy family.  My success depended on the fatherly love and contribution of Ato Abere (I thank you him so much) and the humanitarian support of HDAMA and PIHA. I thank them a lot.

At the end thanks to god & its virgin Mary. I believe that with out the help of god & his mother the successes could not happen.

I would like to take the examples and apply it. I will serve HDAMA in all my life.
