Birtukan's Mother

Birtukan was leading a good life with her aunt in Addis. She was attending school and was mostly content where she was. She ended up at Emmanuel House after her aunt's neighbors convinced her to run away by bribing her with the prospect of a job. She stayed at her new job for only 2 days, because her aunt immediately went to the police, and hanged missing person fliers all around the city. Birtukan's employers took her straight to the police, which is where we found her and took her in. While Birtukan had been happy living with her aunt, she is now going back home to live with her mother, who promised to work towards taking better care of her in the future. Both Birtukan's aunt and her mother were very thankful to NOLM for their services.
