Emebet has been living in Addis for the past year. Even before that, she wasn’t living with her parents. They’re separated and therefore, she had to live with different relatives before her father brought her to Addis and gave her to another relative. Recently, there was a quarrel within her family about where Emebet should stay. Another family (also relatives) with whome Emebet’s sister lives wanted to take Emebet but the family she was with refused. When things started getting tense, the family she was with took their issue to the police. The police sent Emebet to us for temporary stay until her parents come to Addis and settle things.
