Woman fights to save South Sudan children

Efforts on to protect children who are often subjected to neglect and abuse amid renewed fighting.

    South Sudan’s poorest children are being sucked back into a cycle of neglect and abuse.

    The resumption of fighting six months ago has uprooted more than a million people and devastated communities.

    Children, out of school and on the streets, are the most vulnerable to exploitation and sexual abuse of young girls is all-too-frequent.

    Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught reports from Juba on one woman who has dedicated her life to saving these children.
