Chris is 13 years old. He left Liberia because of poverty and Ebola. His mother wanted to find a better job to provide for his studies. A man helped them to leave but he did not follow through on his promises. Chris was separated from his mother and little brother.
With help of UNHCR, the ICRC, the Association of Women-Headed Families (French abbreviation: AFCF) and funding from the Government of Germany, IOM Mauritania reunited the family and helped them start a new life in Liberia.
