Ibrahim Abdi’s story of Tahriib

Ibrahim’s story

Ibrahim Abdi is 16 years old and was born in the city of Jijiga in the Somali region of Ethiopia. He decided to take the hazardous journey to Europe to pursue a better life.

Ibrahim came across many challenges throughout his journey. Ibrahim was amongst a group of 19 young men and 7 girls abandoned in the desert for two days.

”So we waited and our drinking water ran out. Our smuggler returned with water in a fuel tank. The water was mixed with fuel but we drank it. Some in our group fell ill and others were fine”, he said.

Ibrahim lives in Sweden today.
