Azimeraw is 6 years old. He was born in Wellega and lived there until 2022 when he witnessed rebels kill his parents and burn their home in an ethnically motivated attack on their village. He lost one of his fingers during the attack and remains deeply traumatized by what he saw and endured that day. Frustrated, hopeless and grieving the loss of his parents, he now lives with his uncle and 2 brothers in a refugee camp in Debre Birhan located more than 500 km from where he was born. When asked what he hopes for the future he said: “I don’t know, I need to live in another place.”
