Weynitu Demissie, 34, has a 7 months old daughter who is recovering from acute malnutrition

Weynitu Demissie, 34, has a 7 months old daughter who is recovering from acute malnutrition. She says her daughter’s condition was caused by her inability to breast feed her which she says is directly linked with the drought and lack of food in their home. “I never had much milk even during my previous births but atleast then there was always milk from our cows to give to my children but this time we had to sell all our animals due to the drought so there was nothing I could give her.” Weynitu brought her daughter Mastewal to the health post where she was admitted and treated for malnutrition. Currently, she brings her once a week to get her checked and receive the food supplement which Weynitu says is really helping her child.© UNICEF Ethiopia/ 2016/Nahom Tesfaye
