Description : “One day I decided to run away, for it was a matter of life or death. So I ran away alone without my family. I remember in that time I was just thinking about myself and wondering to find a way to survive.” The family was later reunited through the ICRC’s Restoring Family Links program, which seeks to reconnect families who are separated during conflict.
