30 Days of Faith: Day 19 by UNHCR on Flickr.
Fardosa, 28, is an Oromo refugee from Ethiopia, currently living in Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. “ I am a catering student and celebrating Ramadan this month. So far it’s going well, but it’s a challenge to cook during the day when we’re supposed to fast because we normally taste the food as we learn to prepare it. I’ve resisted the temptation so many times, it strengthens my faith. The food we prepare here is special – pizza, njera, mandazi and samosas -not the normal food we have in our homes. Because I can’t taste the food while I’m cooking, I always put some to the side for me and my brother for when we break the fast in the evenings. “
