Jean Pierre, 20 years old, spent one month as a porter for the LRA. He grew too tired to continue and so the commander broke his legs and left him to die in the bush. He crawled for 6 days to find water and help and was nursed by nomadic herders for several months before he could walk. He was then taken to local FARDC (military of the Democratic Republic of Congo) commanders who took him back to his village. Image by Marcus Bleasdale. Democratic Republic of Congo, 2010.
