Biruk was born in Wellega but had to flee the area with his mother and cousins after rebels attacked their village. His father disappeared during the attack and is presumed dead. Biruk is now 4 years old. He has no visible health problems but is deeply traumatized by his loss. Since escaping the attack, he, his mother and 4 cousins– Abraham, Kalkidan, Dirb and Kidist– have all been living in a refugee camp in Debre Birhan more than 500 km from where he was born.
