Abraham was born in Wellega and lived there until 2022 when rebels killed his parents and burned his home in an ethnically motivated attack on their village. He now lives with his aunt and 3 sisters in a refugee camp in Debre Birhan located more than 500 km from where he grew up. He was forced to drop out of grade 3 because of the attack and has now been slowly returning to schoolwork in the camp. He is grieving the loss of his parents and shares that he feels deep sadness. He says that he would like to continue his education to one day become a doctor and support his younger sister.
