Yaekob is from Wolayta Soddo. He was living with his brother and his uncle in Addis. He weighed people on the streets to earn money. Last week, as he was doing his usual work, a drunk man stoned him and broke his hand. Police took the abused into custody and referred Yaekob for temporary stay at the Emanuel House. Yaekob is very happy that he is at EH and is doing very well since his arrival. He wants to continue working to support his family in the countryside, once he testifies against his abuser and the court settles the case.
