Warzone to Godzone
When a 12-year-old packs an overnight bag, it's normally for a sleepover with mates. So imagine how traumatic it was for the woman in our story who was given an hour to pack up her short life.
Hana and her family were stuck in a warzone and she needed to escape in a hurry. Getting out meant surviving but it also meant being separated from her parents, brothers and sisters.
But there's a happy ending to this story, one which New Zealand had a key role in.
Erin Conroy meets a new breed of kiwis finding refuge in Godzone.
