  • Aisha is one of many mothers affected by drought in Ethiopia, doing all they can to care for their loved ones. Aisha received a cash transfer from us, which she used to set up a camel-milk business. Her determination in the face of adversity paid off. Not only does she have milk for her children, she also has some to sell within her local community. Aisha says life has improved – because her children are now healthier, happier and eating better. “My life has changed completely,” she says. “It has made me very hopeful for the future." via Oxfam Great Britain
