She even cooks for the emotionally unstable – Chef Faila saves the drug addicts


Chef Faila shares another profound desire she had when attempting to break the Guniesse World record for the longest cooking marathon.

In an interview with Berla Mundi, she disclosed that her cooking marathon that was organized in the northern region was more than a cooking challenge.

Plague by drugs she claims the northern had been battling this phenomenon for some time now and her cook-a-thon was the yardstick to curb such anomally.

“Before the cook-a-thon, we were fighting against drug abuse in the Northern region. It was that severe during that period. And we’ve been trying to take the youth out of it but during the Cook-a-thon, these same drug addicts were there 24 hours. They were eating from me. They were forced to stop smoking for several hours and days because it wasn’t permitted on the premises,” she said.

Chef Faila further stated that even if she had died during the cook-a-thon, it would have been worth it.

“And anyone that asked me such a question, I told them it would have been worth it. My people would have celebrated me forever for a good cause.

“Haven’t our peers died out of terminating illegal pregnancies? Haven’t our colleagues died out of Kayayo? Haven’t our colleagues died out of peer pressure to do so many illegal things?” she said.

Well, it appears we more than have a cook but a humanitarian too who takes the welfare of her people at heart, she is helping herself by saving the emotionally traumatized, she is really one of a kind and the North will be proud of her.
