Sintayehu and his daughter Lisa

In Ethiopia, “Lisa” is an unusual name. But when Sintayehu’s daughter was born, he and his wife named her after a person who made a tremendous difference in his life: his former Compassion sponsor, Lisa. Today a devoted father and successful small-business owner, Sintayehu says, “Lisa is my hero. I wanted to honor the role she played in my life by remembering her every time I call my daughter.”
