Child soldier: Sent to war aged six

Deng Adut was raised in war-torn Sudan.

By the time he was 11 years old, he had been shot, blown up, and was near to dying from starvation.

Today, after being given the opportunity to rebuild his life, he has become a lawyer in Australia.

Adut still has vivid memories of his traumatic childhood.
