A refugee's journey from Somalia
A refugee's journey from Somalia
Barghoorn, Linda2018
Fatuma does not remember a time when there was no fighting in her homeland of Somalia. With violence all around them and a lack of food and water, Fatuma and her family are forced to escape to the world s largest refugee camp, in Kenya. Life in the camp is hard, and Fatuma hopes to one day feel safe. Interspersed with facts about Somalia and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the decades of conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
