ETHIOPIAN MUTUAL ASSOCIATION, HOUSTON TX (EMHAT)

In Ethiopia, an Edir is a traditional community organization whose members assist each other during the mourning process. Members make monthly financial contribution (membership due) to form the Eder's fund. Each member is entitled to receive a certain amount of money from this fund based on the By-Law of the Edir. The purpose of this payment is to help the family members to cover funeral and other expenses associated with the passing of their loved one.

As described above, the idea of EDIR emanated from our culture of mother land Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Mutual Association, Houston Texas (EMHAT) was established December 4, 2010 by voluntary Ethiopians/Ethiopian Americans legally residing in Houston, Texas and its environs. It is structured as a special unit under the auspices of the EMHAT Inc. designated for a specific purpose in assisting participants of the organization to cover funeral expenses.
