report UN Children's Fund

Par Alexandre Brecher

En recueillant trois jeunes filles déplacées à la suite de l’attaque de leur village par Boko Haram, François Sakotai ne se doutait pas que ce geste généreux serait à l’origine d’un miracle : la réunion d’une mère avec ses enfants.

DZAWANDAI, Cameroun, 25 août 2016 – Lorsqu’on lui demande son âge, François Sakotai se contente de sourire. « Je ne sais pas, répond-il, 70 ans, 80 peut-être ? Tout ce que je sais, c’est que je suis vieux. Je suis vieux et j’étais seul, jusqu’à ce qu’Élisabeth, Delphine et Waibai arrivent chez moi. »
