I Will Not Be a Beggar – Bambay’s Story

Sierra Leone’s violent 10-year civil war devastated its people and left the country in shambles and deeper poverty.

During the war, Bambay, his mother, and two siblings fled from their village and hid in the bush for a month.  When they ran out of food, 15-year-old Bambay went back to his village to find something to eat. He planned to return to his family that day, but when the sun started to go down, he accepted an invitation to stay overnight. It turned out to be a disastrous decision.
