Alem’s story is as clear as it gets. She came to Addis for work and after 15 days at the new house, she got homesick. When no one was around, she decided to runaway and find a way back home. when her father came to the Emmanuel House, he was a little upset because he didn’t understand why she wanted to runway. After we discussed how common it is for kids to feel homesick and runaway, he calmed down. When he came to his senses, he explained how thankful he is for NOLM’s services and for keeping his daughter safe.
