Description : This young lady was shot and wounded during a vehicle raid as she was on a school trip. She was taken care of by the ICRC during two years until she came out of the hospital. Despite pain, she went back to school and is now in year two at the Djibock high school. She keeps on her treatment at the regional hospital where she goes every two days. In order to ensure a continuity of her medical support, the ICRC finances a micro-economic initiatives project for the sale of her mother's handcrafted items.
