Ebla is an elderly lady living with her family in a makeshift house made from dry twigs and grass thatch in Abdi Gab village.
She says that many of the young, able-bodied men have migrated with their livestock in search of grassland and water. This means that the women and children have been left behind without livestock or milk, and with minimal access to food and water.
Sadly, the community hasn’t seen rainfall for the last two years. As a result, their biggest challenge is being able to access water and food.
Ebla dreams of the land of plenty and misses the fresh milk from her camels. Elba now depends on her children to send money back for the family but it sometimes takes them three months to return home, leaving the family vulnerable.
Ebla is currently taking care of her ten grandchildren hoping that it will rain and that their parents return to take care of them.
