Hello! My name is Feride Hysa. I am 60 years old and my birthday is on July 10th. My husband died 23 years ago and since then I am living alone as a widow. I live in a new house in Katjel which offers appropriate living conditions. Speaking about my health, I am suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes.
I live by myself and I take care of myself. In the past, I had a job in agriculture. Now I am retired and receive a small village pension.
In front of my house, I have planted a vegetable garden, and I grow vegetables like beens, onions, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes etc. for my own consumption. During the last months I gathered the vegetables from the garden and I preserve them in jars so that I can consume them during the winter. I don’t sell anything. I also don’t have any livestock because it takes a lot of effort to care for them and provide the needed feed stock.
I have a son, who is emigrating and goes for 10 months to Greece. There he does different jobs to support himself and his family. This income means a lot for his family in Albania.
Now because of the pandemic the feeding program is closed, but usually I bring my grandchildren to the program.
I am very thankful to the Adopt a Child sponsorship program and to the church in Katjel for their help. I have received a food bag containing groceries as oil, flour, rice, etc. This food bag we receive monthly is a big help for us. I am thankful to you for your support and care for me. God bless you!
