AKRON, Pa. – Faida Alex is 22 years old and is from Burundi. Until late 2012, he had never lived there.
In 1972, long before he was born, his parents left Burundi during turmoil in the country. They landed in the Mtabila refugee camp in Kasulu, Tanzania. Later, people fleeing the 1993-2005 civil war in Burundi joined them.
