Description : When she was 15 years old, her village was attacked. The inhabitants were kept there for a week without food before being released. Once they had a chance to escape, the women immediately scattered. She went one way, her mother went another. They hid in the bush. They didn't see each other again for 18 months. The ICRC facilitated their reunification. "They took my information and my photo. They contacted my aunt at Maiduguri and showed her my picture. We both started crying when we heard each other's voice", she says.
