Mekfira is an 8 years old girl. She is living with her mom and her brother. Her brother's name is Kalid, he is 2 and 8 months old. Mekfira was in second grade but has now stopped her schooling about 8 months ago because her mom got very sick from hemorrhoids. Moreover, her mom never went to the hospital to get treatment, because she did not have money to pay for treatment. Due to this, Mekfira cannot get enough food, which is why she stopped her school. Her father passed away before Mekfira was born. She and her family are living in a rental house and they paid 700 birr ($25 USD) per month. Sometimes when her mom is somewhat well she will sit on the street and sell vegetables. She wants to be a doctor in the future.
