Amsalu came to Addis for work. She’s been here for about 2 months and she’s had a very unpleasant stay until her arrival to the Emmanuel House a couple of days ago. Her employer was very abusive and refused to give her food. Amsalu was very happy about going to school but because her employer denied her basic need, she decided to run away. She came to Addis with her aunt and knows where her house is so she was hoping to get there before the police caught her on the street and took her in. Amsalu still wants to go to her aunt and not back home to her family. After weighing in all the facts, we’ll decide whatever is best for the child.
