In pictures: Surviving Sierra Leone
Cross-border conflict

Rosalind Cole, Liberian refugee, 8

The Sierra Leone war has close links with the conflict in neighbouring Liberia.

"We had to run away from Liberia two years ago because of the fighting, and I have been in Taiama refugee camp ever since.

"There are over 5,000 of us here. We have school during the morning, but in the afternoon I have to help my mother to fetch water and firewood.

"It is a difficult life, and all I want to do is go home and live in a real house."
