Ethiopia has been hosting Eritrean refugees in Shire, Tigray Regional State since 2012 in Shimelba, Mai Ayni, Adi Harush, and Hitsats. Several youngsters, both unaccompanied minors fleeing from Eritrea and youth from Ethiopia in transit in the north or from the hosting communities, try to make it to Europe. They are very young and their route is a very dangerous one.
