    One of the slaves returned to the nearby village was Monica's (the commisioner) uncle. He had been a slave since the early 80's.

    High officials in a remote area

    These are the high officials and chief (black cowboy hat) of a remote area we traveled to and delivered aid. He became very emotional when thanking us. He also promised to find the families of the recently returned slaves to his villages.

    slave interview

    This boy was tied to a bench and raped by his master's son. He is being interviewed by CSI.

    freed slaves

    These boys are all former slaves. There are few older people in these pictures. At a certian age they are often killed and replaced by younger slaves.

    woman in west

    This woman is a former slave. Many times these childeren were the products of rape.


    These pictures are of abuse the children recieved as slaves. Many were stabbed, burnt, or beaten.

    abused woman

    Almost all the women went through genital mutilation. This woman refused and is telling the story of how she was beaten because of it.


    In this area 45,000 people share one well.


    This girl has a bad wound (below) in her leg. This will be the first time she's ever seen a doctor.
