This video coverage by W. Calvin Anderson, M.Ed publisher of Groovetrak Network News (wcalvinanderson.com) was from a very special event that took place at the private home of Martin Luther King III. Martin III is tirelessly engaged with leadership projects promoting U.S. creedal ideals and values and international social change and social reconstruction. Like his dad he is a respected leader promoting: human rights: violence reduction and prevention: improved community policing: civic responsibility: non violent dissent of public policy: solutions-based reforms and improvements in legal, community and economic development; clean energy and environmental concerns and public health needs. Additionally, his wife of ten years, Arndrea Waters King is an avid humanitarian and supporter of high and low profiled causes. Arndrea currently serves as a board member for the Ethiopian aid organization appropriately called, HEAL-ETH . COM. The dynamic couple is well aware of the 1984 drought that claimed the lives of over one million Ethiopians and they, with Arndrea taking the lead have decisively organized progressive efforts to assist those in need in Ethiopia from their home and through an aggressive global social media drive.
The Helping Ethiopia Achieve Longevity (HEAL) organization is a nonprofit 501(C) (3) dedicated to helping Nutrition Plus Holistic Home Care (NPHHC) with a direct outreach model for its program beneficiaries in Ethiopia. NPHHC has been able to meet and exceed its goals which include: providing integrated home-based care for people impacted by the drought, supporting care for living with HIV/AIDS, economic empowerment for poor girls, and improving the education, health, life skills training for orphans and vulnerable children.
“Menty”Araya is the prime-mover of this dynamic effort. She is the former assistant to the Hon. Andrew Young (Civil Rights Activist, Mayor of Atlanta and U.S. Ambassador) and adviser for humanitarian activities in Africa. Her heart felt mission began when she returned to where she was born in Ethiopia 1993 to promote business investments, and realized that infrastructure was needed to organize direct services to needy people. This Menty understood as her “true calling” and she has respected careful stewardship to those in need ever since. Mentuab established NPHHC in 2003 and recently HEAL in the U.S. and both organizations focus on positively impacting Ethiopia by providing care and support to people living with HIV/AIDS and their families, people with disabilities, orphans and vulnerable children, and economic empowerment to poor women/girls she has made remarkable progress and seeks to increase problem-solving by direct funding and through studies by students and professional networked-advocates in international “sister cities”like Atlanta.
