Description : ICRC website photo gallery, 08.01.2018 : « South Sudan: Abducted children reunited with parents after more than a year apart. Emmanuel (4), Monika (6) and Victor (12) were abducted from their village on the 28th of August 2016. “The children were taken around 7pm. That is when we normally sit around the fire place at night. After some time, we heard a neighbour crying ‘My children, my children…’ then out of nowhere someone came and started beating my husband. Emmanuel was there, he cried and said ‘baba, baba’… when the guy saw the child, he grabbed him and ran away”, Emmanuel’s mother, Rosa, explains. […] “I remember when I came back home, Emmanuel used to always greet me. He said ‘mama is here’. Since he went missing, no one has done this…I used to give him small presents. I think he remembers us. He will recognize me and his father.”
