Children's Stories

Nepal's violent civil war tore apart 12-year-old Bhuwan Moktan's family. His older brother and sister died in the conflict. Broken by the loss, Bhuwan's father sank into depression and alcoholism, then further into mental illness. His mother grieved constantly and soon fell ill. Surrounded by tragedy, Bhuwan feared he would become the next victim. In desperation, he and a friend ran from their village in Nepal's lush plains and fled east to Kathmandu.
