Qelem is from Jihor. She’s been in Addis for less than a month. Back home, she lived with her father & stepmother. Qelem and her stepmother faced a lot of challenges because of her father’s addiction. He always comes home drunk and beats both of them. Her stepmother’s aunt thought she was doing her a favor by asking her father to bring her to Addis. Qelem had also felt a little relief from all that she faced back home. sadly, her little break ended when her stepmother’s aunt had a fight with her father (over the phone) and kicked her out. A strict intervention is expected on our team’s end before reunifying Qelem with her father. Please pray for this family.
