Mekedes’ Mom is 35 years old with a Grade 3 education. She currently is washing clothing and baking injera for a living which provides a monthly income of 1,700 ETB ($62) including her husband’s income, but inflation has caused her house rent to take 1,200 ETB of that salary monthly, leaving her little to live on. She also cares for her 10 year old orphaned niece. With care for Mekedes, she now can look for better work. Mekedes is 1 1/2 years old and part of the EH Day Care where she is nourished and cared for.
