Thousands of refugees run away from their homeland country when they are in danger and seeking for a better life. For example, according to Upfront’s latest magazine issue, “Ethiopia’s Refugee Crisis”, we learn about how many people ran away from Ethiopia and into neighboring places, such as Sudan. Many of those being children, crossing alone.

Not only are they children, but entire families as well, and even pregnant women. They live in very bad living conditions, with little to no food, and in very dirty conditions. Many witness very traumatizing things such as the death and murder of family members, etc. Not only are these people putting their lives in danger but they are doing it in order to escape from poverty and to have a better life.
