Children who are forced to serve as soldiers in conflict zones are often severely traumatised by their experiences and face a long road to recovery should they manage to escape.

But a charity in the northern Ugandan district of Gulu is helping former child soldiers, so they can successfully reintegrate with their families and communities.
