Four-year old Oumoh met her mother for the first time in 5 months in what is being described as a “rare reunion” as over 21,000 refugees arrive in Italy yearly with more than 2,000 of them being unaccompanied minors.

Her mom had fled with her from Ivory Coast to save her from Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) after which they got separated in Tunisia.

Oumoh was then rescued by Italian coast guards from the Mediterranean in November 2016 and was identified shortly after by another refugee child from a photo she had seen on someone’s phone.

The mother had to this to say

I didn’t abandon her. I would not abandon my child; She is my child, she is my blood.

    Nonsense, she fled through the desert to Isis territory to get on a dingy to Europe fleeing fgm? Putting her her and her child’s life through totally unnecessary risk???
    She no fit taken bus to Ghana or Lagos or even another location in Ivory Coast? None of these west Africans are refugees they are just opportunists, illegals the lot of them. Concocting lies, some even claim to be homos in the name of asylum.

    I’m glad they’re reunited.
    It’s still unclear to me why the toddler was all alone.
