Ugandan war survivors partnered with therapy dogs

Filda was abducted as a child and forced into the LRA rebel army in Uganda, where she witnessed terrible atrocities.

As part of a scheme called The Comfort Dog Project, Filda has been partnered with a dog who was abandoned as a puppy.

The two are now helping each other heal, along with many others like them.
