Masua Abaneru, 22, fisherman and father of three children, was abducted by the LRA and used as a porter. When he became too tired to continue, he was taken into the bush and the LRA commanders forced the children to hit him with sticks until he was dead. He woke up several days later and crawled to find help. He was found by some people coming to the village to bury the dead after they heard of the attack. He has not been able to work for over one year due to the attack. Image by Marcus Bleasdale. Democratic Republic of Congo, 2010.
