They came by night; they came with guns and fire; and they came to destroy. The story is a common one in Sudan, where ongoing civil war has torn apart families and pitted one ethnic group against another for nearly thirty years. Amira’s is one of a thousand heartbreaking stories – a daughter lost, and the only family she had remaining trudging for days to flee sectarian violence, coming to the United States. But Amira’s story is also Tina’s story: the six-year-old daughter who was lost to the night and violence, left thousands of miles away. After the decades passed, the mother and daughter are meeting again at an airport in America where Amira had fled and Tina at long last secured asylum. See the amazing story of hope and reunion in the clip below.
