'Lost Girls' of S Sudan rebuild lives in US

Girls orphaned during country's civil war in the 1980's and 90's were adopted and brought to the US to live by a rabbi.

    The experiences of the 'Lost Boys' of Sudan, youngsters who fled the country's civil war during the 1980's and 90's, have been well documented but what happened to the girls?

    Thanks to a rabbi in Colorado, one group of girls was adopted and brought to the US.

    Now the 'Lost Girls' plan to return to South Sudan and help others.
