War devastated Sierra Leone for over 10 years. Rebels were killing civilians, civilians who weren’t killed had no food, and the road to freedom was blocked.

Abie Turay, a survivor of the Sierra Leone Civil War, recounts how LDS Charities and members of the LDS Church helped her and her family survive. After the war, she was trained in neonatal resuscitation and is able to bless her community by serving as a midwife.
