  • 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.
