The Helping Ethiopia Achieve Longevity (HEAL) benevolent funding organization is a nonprofit 501(C) (3) dedicated to helping the programming organization, 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 poor rural pastoralist women and girls. Menty’s diverse services provide supportive care for those living with HIV/AIDS and as well as programs to increase educational and health access for orphans and vulnerable children.
Mentuab “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 been a respected steward of those in need ever since. Mentuab established NPHHC in 2003 and later in 2008 founded HEAL which was formerly Nutrition Plus Holistic Services, Inc.
