ethiopia didn't just blow my mind; it opened my mind. Anyway, on our last day at this orphanage a man handed me his baby and said, 'Would you take my son with you?' He knew, in Ireland, that his son would live, and that in ethiopia, his son would die.

I feel a social responsibility. We need to open people's eyes. There is a lack of education in Ethiopia.
— Haile Gebrselassie
