As a child in a small rural village in Sierra Leone, Mariatu Kamara lived peacefully surrounded by family and friends. But when 12-year-old Mariatu set out for neighbouring village, she never arrived. Rebel soldiers attacked Mariatu and cut off both her hands. Mariatu miraculously survived and eventually moved to Toronto, Canada where she wrote the book “The Bite of the Mango”. Mariatu works for UNICEF as a Special Representative.
