Despite her lack of food intake, Muluwork leads a seemingly normal life in Addis Ababa, Jimma. She mentioned visiting a doctor in Dubai who found no physical issues with her stomach but raised questions about her mental health.

Remarkably, Muluwork, who is 26 years old, still engages in farming activities. However, when her crops are ready for harvest, she allows her mother or sister to reap and enjoy the produce, while she abstains from consuming any of it.

Muluwork’s case has sparked curiosity and intrigue, prompting discussions about the human body’s capacity to sustain itself without traditional forms of nourishment. While her situation may seem unusual, it serves as a reminder of the complexity and diversity of human experiences.



“I would let the vegetables grow and and when they reach harvest time, I let my mother or sister harvest and eat” the mother of one added.

Living such a life without taking any meal or and visiting the washroom for short call; Muluwerk said it was just the works of God.

“When I was pregnant of my daughter, doctors gave me glucose to supplement the natural body energy and when I gave birth, she fed on artificial milk. Living such like my life is the work of God.” She added.
