Saba HileMaskel has worked almost single-handedly for six years to help ease the transition of Ethiopian refugees to a new way of life in California. From her tiny office between a printing shop and a carpet store on Crenshaw Boulevard in South Los Angeles, she has helped newcomers, as well as Ethiopians who have been in the United States for several years, cut through the red tape of government assistance agencies and find food, emergency shelter, housing and medical care.

I read your article "Ethiopian Woman Keeping Lonely Vigil Helps Countrymen Settle in U.S." with keen interest (Metro, Aug. 1).

The sights, sounds and smells of Ethiopia can be found along a stretch of Fairfax Avenue--and so can the political tensions of the homeland. Today, Los Angeles is home to more than 35,000 Ethiopians, the second-largest such enclave in the United States after Washington. Ethiopians have made their imprint, adding another hue to the complex cultural mosaic of Southern California. There is an Ethiopian newspaper and a magazine.
