In Sierra Leone, one of the world's poorest countries, Brother Lothar Wagner, a friar of the Salesian Society, is fighting against the human slave trade and trying to help homeless children.
The African slave traffickers are growing ever more ruthless: Poor parents are talked into giving up their children, or vagrant kids are picked up off the street. Two years ago, the young priest raised the alarm publicly, when several of the kids he was caring for disappeared. He set up a center for homeless children in the capital of Freetown and is trying to track down the missing children.
