My heart beats slowly as my mum fades away. Hi I’m Alou I live in Africa and I’m 12 years old. Today my mum had to put me on a boat to get shifted to Australia I really miss her but I know I hopefully will see her soon. My mind was ponding as the boat had 300 kids from Africa on it I was thinking that I might never see my mum ever again. There is a war happening in Africa and that’s why we are leaving when I got to Australia I saw them raising money for my people and I knew I would never see mum again.
