How we helped Bisharo*

 

“I dream that I can study.” - Bisharo 12.

Bisharo’s mum Rukia lost 6 children one after another, who were all aged just one year or under when they died from preventable diseases such as pneumonia.
Living in an isolated community in a remote region of eastern Ethiopia, without schools, roads and healthcare, meant that Rukia was forced to carry her children by foot for hours to seek treatment when they fell ill.

Now all her children, including baby Farah, aged one, are fully immunised and Rukia advocates for fellow mothers to have their children vaccinated. “Now the problems are decreasing,” she says.

“It was good to see my daughter survive,” Rukia says. “I felt happy to see her recover. Bisharo means success.”
