LayanLayan talks with EMI Disaster Responders at what used to be her home. "This used to be my home. It has become the graveyard of many friends. Now we must start from zero. But we are safe, the bond of my family is stronger, and enemies have become friends. In the end we still have each other and this is all that matters."

WajjuuThese two girls are standing in the dry rolling plains of the area locally known as ‘Wajjuu’, just a few hours north of Addis Ababa. Unlike the little boy – who carries only a stick for keeping track of his goats – they are carrying water. The vessel is hidden behind their back, wrapped up in the shawl around their shoulders. They tug at these shawls while walking for kilometers each day just to bring home some water. The EMI team interrupted their trip for this photo.
