Feeding Four in Ethiopia

Debisa and her family

Meet Debisa Ali, 27. She is a resident of Jaro village in Amhara Region, Ethiopia. She is widowed and taking care of three children (7, 4 and 2 years old).   Unfortunately, neither her late husband nor she possesses farmland. Both made a living by doing daily labor. After her husband’s death, Debisa started making homemade beer and baskets to sell.

Feeding four mouths every day in a drought-prone district is an unbearable task for a young mother like Debisa, especially while trying to get supplementary food for a one-year-old child. With the help of a local government screening committee, she was identified as a mother in need of support from the USAID-funded food aid program.

Debisa said, “As I was registered in the beneficiary list I went to the district town to attend how to prepare porridge from Corn Soy Blend (CSB) and cooking oil with other women like me. After the training they gave me 10 pounds of CSB, one pound of cooking oil and 33 pounds of wheat grain for a one month ration. Since then I got cooking oil and wheat grain every month (four times), but they told me that CSB was a one-time distribution.”

She added that the food aid she got from April through August of last year supplemented her family’s food needs. She still struggles every day and works hard making baskets and local beer to sell in order to feed her children and send them to school. Debisa’s story is just one of millions of the same.
