The sound of gunfire and the shouts of armed men faded the further she ran – ending up at her family’s small farming plot, where they grow manioc.

What she didn’t know then, was that her family would remain “hiding in the bush” for six months, in a shelter made from tree branches, eating wild vegetables and fruits, and drinking swamp water.
