We are heartbroken at the passing of Habtamu Wibishet.
Habtamu, a 14-year-old in the eighth grade, was a charming teenager who enjoyed playing soccer and wanted to be a doctor when he grew up. As an HIV-positive orphan who was being raised by his aunt, he joined the Blue Nile Children's Organization family in August 2012. Sadly, he recently contracted tuberculosis and died of a related infection.
We will always cherish the beautiful memories of Habtamu.
