Almaz’s wish came true when our team located her uncle/guardian living in Addis and reunified her with him. right from the start, she wanted to go back to him and his family and the only reason she came to the Emmannuel House was because she lost her way back to her uncle’s home after going out to church.

Emebet’s court case couldn’t be established because she changed her testimony at the last minute. The only reason she testified against her employer in the first place was because of the pressure she was under from her family and also because she wanted to scare her employer/friend. Once she told the truth to the police, the charges were dropped and her sister came to the Emmanuel House to take Emebet back home.
