When Pat Bradley, president of International Crisis Aid (ICA), asked Juliann Troi to write an article to promote awareness of the life-saving work his nonprofit organization was doing in Ethiopia, Troi realized it couldn't be done from her office; first-hand experience was needed. Knowing that Pat's work focused mostly on life-and-death situations in places where no one could easily go, guaranteed a difficult trip. Gathering her courage, she left her family and comfortable home to embark on a journey that forever changed her and the way she saw the world. Troi spent a week in and around Angacha, a small village south of Ethiopia's capital, bringing hope to a desperate land Where There Is No Comfort. During that time, she helped ICA's team feed the starving, heal the sick, and reach out to young girls recently freed from sex slavery. Troi found that millions of Ethiopians suffer unspeakable hardships, yet exhibit an amazing resilience and strength of character as they struggle to survive. This inspirational snapshot of life in Ethiopia will open your eyes and touch your heart. Juliann Troi lives in Edmond, Oklahoma, where she is president/artisan of Golden Seed Arts and Media, Ltd. Her home-based business allows her to express her creativity through art in all forms, while writing gives wings to her dreams. She hopes that through Where There Is No Comfort, readers will realize that it's never too late to do something unexpected, even extraordinary.
