These people, many of whom had lost members of their families, were truly haunted by what they had witnessed. I met grown men who were crying as they retold their stories. I met and saw children who were drawing pictures of the atrocities that they had seen. I met young teenage girls who had seen and witnessed violence and rape that was unimaginable as well as now having the responsibility to care for younger siblings as they had lost parents.

Many of them asked us not to force them home."
