Melkamu is 13 years old. He was born in Wellega and lived there until 2022 when rebels killed his parents and burned their home in an ethnically motivated attack on their village. He now lives with his uncle and 2 brothers in a refugee camp in Debre Birhan located more than 500 km from his former home. Deeply traumatized and grieving the loss of his parents, he is unsure about the future. He says: “I don’t know anything about my future life. I feel insecure.”
