A woman in Ethiopia gathers firewood
 
Loko walks alone for eight hours a day, in shoes so thin that thorns repeatedly pierce through to her feet, to gather and sell firewood so she can feed her children.
‘I pray to God as I walk, asking him to change my life and lead us out of this.’

Loko refuses to give up hope. She dreams of owning a cow one day; its milk would help her children to grow strong, and she could also sell some so she could save enough money to set up a small business buying and selling tea and coffee.

Christian Aid Week 2015 will focus on our transformative work in Ethiopia.
