In areas once affected by famine, Ethiopia builds capacity to wipe out malnutrition

In areas once affected by famine, Ethiopia builds capacity to wipe out malnutrition

By Indrias Getachew

GETER MEDA, Ethiopia
, 24 January 2012 – Seven-month-old Aynadis played with her mother, Seta Temesgen, as they waited to be screened at the Geter Meda Health Post.
Several weeks ago, Aynadis was diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition – a condition that can be deadly if untreated.

Ms. Temesgen believes her work as a field labourer contributed to Aynadis’s condition.

“We don’t stay at home to feed them,” she said about mothers in their agrarian community. “We spend our day in the fields, and the babies spend the day on our backs… If we are working, we don’t want to miss the work, so we only feed them when they start crying, and that harms them.”

But Aynadis is fortunate. She was referred to the village’s outpatient therapeutic feeding programme (OTP), where she has been receiving life-saving treatment. Today’s check-up will show how much progress she has made since her diagnosis.

I will give credit where it’s due and my personal belief is that Meles is not all evil and has done and is doing some good like in this case. However this does not water down the fact that he is a tyrant that has denied the people their basic rights and even worse has not put in place sustainable solutions to the perennial food shortage problem. Being in the good books of donor agencies and having them fund activities that the government should provide for the citizenry is not a sustainable solution.

With today’s population growth, Ethiopia could not afford it. We should have a radical population control. Specially in north where they get birth like a a fly, knowing that the oxfam and unsaid food is on food shelter to collect every month….

Breeding like a fly and begging the whole world for food. No, that is called chiggariesem.

This is the true face of our country.We have a lot of challenges to overcome and reach a very basic neccesity, like geting a desent meal aleast ones a day. we diaspora people living in the states and other western countries, should make our contributions to make a diference instead of blaming every damn thing in the sitting government. I am nuetral in politics and do not support any party but it doesn`t take a genius to understand that despite not being a democrat, the govenment is making a wonderfull job in developing the country in every front. I am sick and tired of hearing only the negative part of the regime from those pathetic people like Berhanu Nega, Tamagne (the comedian) and many others. My message to you people is,if you realy realy care for Ethiopia, free your mind open your eyes, turn all your negative energy to positive, mobilize your followers and do some positive things for the people.Just for a change. Peace to all!!!!

“Together with providing sustenance and nourishment for the body, U.N.I.C.E.F has since 1961 been offering assistance in the education of the young as part of its programme. The saying is ‘Mens sana in corpore sano’- a sound mind in a sound body; food for the body and food for the mind are both essential.
Problems still remain. Although attempts have been made to control birth, millions of children are still born in misery, and die in sickness. Millions of African children die in infancy. Those that survive are all to often handicapped by disease, by lack of education, with no opportunity to inherit the rights of other children of the world. During this meeting, you will have an opportunity to take action which will enable generations that follow to look back upon this conference as the beginning of a new era of well-being and happiness for our children. If humanity is led to a better observance of covenants- that are meant for the orderly conduct of life- and if the progress of science is applied solely for human welfare, the increase of population would have become not a burden but a matter of gratification. If this approach is made the needs of children in education, health and other respects would be fully met, thus assuring a better life for all succeeding generations. We urge you to draw upon your wisdom and experience in your search for the means to provide a healthy and prosperous future for our children.
May Almighty God bless you in the work that lies before you.” Negus Haile Selassie, Father of African Unity, Founder and Guide of the United Nations, Jah bless U.N.I.C.E.F to continue their good work in Ethiopia and Africa.

Long Live the Constitutional Monarchy!
Long Live African Unity!
Long Live the Charter of the United Nations!
Fire burn down the divide and rule policy of ethnic federalism
Gasha for Ethiopians!
Tinsae! Moa Anbessa!
Long Live Independeent Ethiopia!

The sad story is this is done through the foreign aid organization.If we can’t sustain our citizen’s basic food demand what are we? I still hold the shifta/looter/tyrant Meles the “chimp” accountable. for 20 years he had put my Ethiopia to such misery, where getting a meal once per days is considered great!!!
United we shall have a better Ethiopia soon.

@Abera,

I agree 100%. We have to put the basic needs of the people before politics. Basic but also crucial needs of any civilized nation include, clean water, three meals a day, education, medical care, or as metion in the article, (village outpatient therapeutic feeding programme (OTP)), toilet acces, etc..

I am waiting for the day when Ethiopia will be called again with her real name, The Bread Basket of Africa and her people are again proud and well fed.

Since the inception of TPLF and Woyane the good name of Ethiopia has been put to shame and tarnished with Meles made famine and starvation.

Now all the famine and starvation cause is no more a mystery but crimes that is made by Meles.

Farmers are chased out of their farm and their land is sold to foreign bidders by their own government. This shameful and gruesome unlawful action of EPRDF will come to an end once and for all soon.

Thanks to the wise people of OLF that stood strong and joined their compatriots to defeat the criminal regime of Meles that is bleeding Ethiopians.

Have you seen the health worker nail how dirty it is. Look at the women who Breast feed the baby how much dry is her breast. It is sad this is not something we should proud of our leader. Ethiopia must teach it people how to use birthcontrol.

Lack of Nutrients, Starvation, Poor quality food, eg eating potato and bread only, drinking river water. Poor health starving
1) When you get really hungry and your stomach hurts and all you can think about is food. good food. and you repeatedly say youre hungry and wanna look at pictures of food and eat it and then be really happy after.

2) Not getting enough food.
