SAVING LIVES AND CHANGING PERCEPTIONS

Welcome. At CareEpilepsy Ethiopia, our mission is to save the lives of those affected by epilepsy and associated disabilities, while changing perceptions of epilepsy and ultimately fostering a society that embraces those affected by the condition.

Founded in 2015 by Enat Yewnetu, who has lived with epilepsy for over three decades, we have made a significant impact through our community-driven approach, engaging professional and youth volunteers.

Our holistic approach to care includes the following strategic initiatives providing and facilitating early epilepsy diagnosis and treatment, increasing the number of nurses and health officers trained to treat epilepsy, raising awareness about epilepsy within communities, improving the emotional, social, and economic wellbeing of our patients, and engaging with partner organizations including patients, families, and local communities to influence policies affecting people with epilepsy through advocacy.

Our logo, featuring a central cross and individuals in dialogue, symbolizes our commitment to improved care and open conversations as catalysts for breaking stigma and building an inclusive society. Registered in Ethiopia under Authority for Civil Society Organizations number 3380 and in the UK with Charity Commission number 1151942, we continue to empower those affected by epilepsy to shape their own journeys.
