Thompson also wanted to help the Arise become self-supporting by teaching them to farm.
When my father, Germa Amare, and I visited Thompson and his second wife, Evelyn, in 1996, we learned about the egg project.
On one trip to Alberta he purchased twenty eggs of certified Rhode Island Reds and carried them in a basket for more 24 hours in his flight back to Addis Ababa.
At the leprosarium, he gave four eggs to five families from the hospital and village.

Fikre Germa Updated: December 15th, 2017 Ontario, Canada (TADIAS) — In 1988, I arrived in Vancouver anxious to find a way to continue my medical studies and establish myself as a physician. Few know that between 19 he helped Ethiopia rebuild, or that he later befriended and mentored young Ethiopian immigrants in British Columbia.
He used to say that it is the teachers who loved Ethiopia that were very effective as opposed to those who had a lot of degrees — he was very attentive to culture and human relationship.
The Emperor, a devout Christian and head of the Office of the Ethiopian Coptic Church, quickly felt a bond with Thompson and gave him freedom to tackle the tasks that Thompson felt were a priority.
I also absorbed Thompson’s respectful and sustainable model for developing Ethiopia’s potential, one I would try to apply in my own work for Ethiopia.
Thompson, who was born in the United States to Canadian parents and raised in Alberta, had been a teacher and a chiropractor before World War II.
