Ethiopia is Africa's second largest refugee hosting country.

Lee Kasumba, journalist

In January 2018 there were approximately 900 000 refugees from surrounding countries with main population coming form South Sudan.

Lee Kasumba, journalist

In Ethiopia they really feel like camp life is not the way to go. They are widely celebrated for trying to integrate refugees in society as well as rehabilitate them.

Lee Kasumba, journalist

If you've been a refugee for more than 20 years, after going through scrutiny you'll be offered pathway to citizenship.

Lee Kasumba, journalist

Kasumba says Ethiopians have a strong feeling that they are their 'brother's keeper'.

Approximatley 26 000 refugees live in the capital city of Addis Ababa.
