In the war-torn country of Sierra Leone, a decade of conflict has made the poverty, abuse and neglect of children so bad many families can't afford to take care of their children. Thousands of children witnessed horrible violence, were subjected to systematic abuse and, in many cases, were forced to become combatants themselves. The war deprived them of an education and, worse, confronted them with the brutal human cruelty at a tender age, destroying their childhood. Children have been orphaned and left on their own on the streets, in danger of violence and sexual abuse.
The Child Rescue Centre in Bo, Sierra Leone, is a non-profit organization that provides food, shelter, clothing, health care, education and skills training for orphans and street children. In addition to nurturing the 46 resident children at the center, the CRC provides educational funding and health care for 100 additional children in Bo who live in family settings.
