Relocated Children

Due to deadly attacks coming from jihadists in both the Northern and Southern part of the country, hundreds of thousands of refugees flee to the South-West area of Burkina Faso. Several families had to flee the country and thus were not able to carry their belongings with them, as their lives were threatened. In most cases, they find shelter and are helped by locals or organizations. 

Amongst those families, children are sometimes separated from their families and left on their own. Charities and organizations such as ASB aim to localize them in order to provide support for them.
