Wede told us her true story after 2months stay at the Emmanuel House. It turns out that she is from right here in Addis and run away from home because of the physical punishments her mother put her through. We confirmed this when we took Wede to her mother and talked to them both. This is Wede’s 7th time running away from home and her mother said she had never stayed away this long. We saw that her mother was over joyed because of her daughter’s return and we chose to warn her about the consequences of physical abuse which might even extend to legal measures. Both mother and daughter were happy and grateful to meet once again.
