A young orphaned migrant fostered by a family in Italy has taken his foster mother to meet his grandmother in The Gambia. Last month, the young man, who prefers to go by his childhood nickname of Lexy, made the reverse journey with his foster mother Giusella Ferraro - this time by aeroplane. The experience has not been all smiles, he says, as it has felt “extremely emotional” to be back, but the warm welcome has made it worth it.
