GREENSBORO, N.C. — Four children, separated from their family by the civil war in Somalia, are back with their parents in Greensboro for the first time in 10 years.

Faduma Hersi, the children’s mother, escaped the violence in Somalia with two kids, then came to the United States as refugees in 2007.

Hersi has been working with Elon law students with the Humanitarian Immigration Clinic to bring the rest of her family to Greensboro ever since.
