VIDEO: An Introduction to Omo Child   video

Jutta - 3 minutes ago - youtube.com

Omo Child's Mission is to stop Mingi, the ritualistic killing of infants and children, and to provide education and a safe, nurturing shelter for rescued children in the Omo River Valley of Southwest Ethiopia.
Mingi is defined as being impure or cursed in certain African tribes in the Omo River Valley in Ethiopia, including the Kara and Hamar tribes. Unfortunately, these tribes participate in the tribal ritual of killing children that are declared Mingi.

A child can be declared Mingi for the following reasons — Teeth Mingi, Girl Mingi, Woman Mingi and Twin Mingi just to name a few. Being declared Mingi almost always means death of the child. The tribe will leave the child alone in the desert without food and water or will drown the child in the river.
