Two years ago Lucas returned to his village to find that his 12-year-old daughter had been abducted by the armed groups that intimidate communities living on the border between South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Jacqueline is one of dozens of children, whose lives are blighted by armed groups who abuse them and force them to commit atrocities. Some eventually manage to escape but end up far away from home, often on the wrong side of the border. The ICRC draws on its network of national society volunteers to help organize their long awaited return.
