"For years we ate just one small meal a day. But the beehives are changing that."

Wubalem Shiferaw lives in rural Ethiopia, one of the seven poorest countries in the world. In the past, she earned a meagre living labouring for others, and it was a daily struggle to get enough food for her family.

With Oxfam's support, Wubalem has received a modern beehive, protective clothing, plus training on processing honey. It means she now earns enough to pay for essentials such as food and medicines, and is on her way to becoming truly self-sufficient.

You can help many more women to take up beekeeping and help their families break free from poverty. Please donate what you can today.
