About 1.5 million people have fled villages and live in about 180 squalid Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps, which has changed the rural life in Northern Uganda. Many children in this area are afraid of being abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).The rebel group has brought terror to Northern Uganda for almost twenty years, fighting the Ugandan government. The victims are usually children, who are abducted and used as child soldiers and sex slaves. .(Photo by Per-Anders Pettersson)..
