Their mother 'Letay' died days after giving birth to twin girls Aden and Terfu leaving them in the hands of men - her husband, brother, and sons raise the girls. Tigrayan refugee Abraha Kinfe Gebremariam, 40, feeds his 4-month old daughter, Aden, inside their shelter in Hamdayet, eastern Sudan, near the border with Ethiopia, in March 2021. Their village of Mai Kadra was the first known massacre of a conflict in which thousands of ethnic Tigrayans like his family have been killed.
