Description : This little girl was traumatized after having been forced to leave her village and after her mother died. During a time, she isolated herself from the rest of her family. But thanks to the support and care she received at the listening centre of Lazaré, she now feels better. In the first year of elementary class, she found refuge in learning and drawing. She loves poems, playing on the swing and drawing. "I feel better now. I draw cars, houses, children playing soccer. I was sad when mum left. I get along well with the other children. When I grow up, I would like to be a Red Cross volunteer to help children like I was helped", she explains.
