– “She knew that her son was leaving, he’d told them. But I knew nothing about my son and that’s how we found out.”
Foosiyo’s son Ahmed was 16 when he decided to leave his hometown Hargeisa in Somaliland and try to reach Europe with the help of smugglers. Foosiyo knew nothing about his plans. One day he did not come home and the next morning a neighbour told her that he had travelled together with her own son and some other boys.
