Rifkatu Ayuba catches sight of her long-lost, desperately missed, now 17-year-old. “My Saratu!” she wails, reaching out to a laptop screen, the closest she’s been to her child in two years. She is desperate to comfort her little girl, but helpless. Saratu Ayuba is one of 15 girls seen in the recording shown to some of the families for the first time at an emotional meeting this week.

Alex Cummings

Alex Cummings: Super Leader – Rising to the Top Set in an affluent neighborhood on the outskirt of the City of Atlanta, Georgia, the home of Alex & Theresa Cummings sits majestically with its walls of fine granite and cobbled stone driveway.
