“They found a small girl at home [when] the parents were not present. The girl was alone and they took her to the bush near the house. No one saw them because homes in the rural areas are scattered and no one can see what is happening in another,” he stated.

The little girl is receiving treatment in Wau town, Western Bahr el Ghazal state.
