Children's Stories

Nine-year-old Chhamu lived peacefully in western Nepal until the country's violent civil war upended her family and her village. First, Chhamu's father left home. Next, her brother was pulled into the fighting when the militia threatened to kill him if he didn't enlist. Chhamu was recruited as well, but fled to safety in Kathmandu with her aunt.
