Sierra Leone's civil war officially ended in January, but the emotional scarring of the countries' 5 million people, half of whom were displaced, will take years to heal. Host Bob Edward's speaks with Davidson Jonah from the Christian Children Fund about working to help teenage girls who were abducted and sexually abused by rebels. The girls are often stigmatized by their families and communities because of the abuse.
