Masika is 13.
She lives in DR Congo. Masika was helping her aunt collect firewood when she was captured by soldiers and forced to join the militia.
She was forced to live a life no child should live.

Local people stopping war and building peace were a lifeline to Masika.
They urgently need your support.
