a life with grandparents

Meseret came to Addis because her family’s financial condition was deteriorating and she had to work to support them. Her father was the one who brought her here and got her the job. Despite the hardship back home, she wanted to go back home and runaway from her employer’s house. We reached her family through the local police and although they gave us information about their whereabouts, they weren’t able to connect us with them. Because the area is very far from town, we had to reunify Meseret with her grandparents who live closer to town. Because Meseret had lived with her grandparents before, she was happy to be reunified with them.
