This is Aschalew’s second time in Addis in a month period. The first time, he runaway after a fight with his parents about his bad behavior. This time, he runaway because he lost a couple of his family’s cattle and his parents made him spend the night outside. Because this was his second time through the system, he went straight to the police after his arrival in Addis. We think he might have been trying to find a permanent place to stay but once the police found out he has a family, they sent him to us for temporary stay. We need to do a lot of work before attempting to reunify Aschalew.
