Mail deliveries in Ethiopia are often problematic. Many of the streets in Addis Ababa have more than one name. The street signs, if any, have been largely manufactured in China and after translation are often misspelt. Further, if there is street street numbering, it is confusing, as there are often multiple dwellings on one plot. Consequently the postal system is unreliable, so DRE does not send mail parcels to HFCE. All mail to sponsored children is required to go through DRE. The expense also makes it cost prohibitive.
