Miguel the Artist

Miguel* first came to SOS Children's Village Tete as a frightened eight-year old. He had been found along with four other young children in an abandoned wagon on the outskirts of Tete. The group had been kidnapped by RENAMO fighters, taken from their parents in Sofala province and then abandoned by the soldiers.
