“Many, many people are stranded, scattered all over the place,” Mr. Atem said. “This is really devastating because we tried to go back and help this country. It’s really a sad situation.”

The number of rape incidents recently has soared drastically. Just last year, the world lost a gem: a 23 year old medical student from India. She was gang raped by five men on a bus.

Bringing up more intellectual people was part of that dream. Just imagine how much she could've done if those 5 men didn't do what they did to her....
