GULU, UGANDA AUGUST 3: An unidentified child at the malnutrition ward at Gulu hospital on Aug 3, 2005 in Gulu, Northern Uganda. He can't eat and has to be fed with a tube. The mother was referred from the nutrition clinic at Pader camp for displaced people. Many children arrive with Malaria and malnutrition during the rain period in Uganda. The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), rebel group, has brought terror to Northern Uganda for almost twenty years, fighting the Ugandan government. Many people have been displaced and live in refugee camps. The victims are usually children, which are abducted and used as child soldiers and sex slaves. Many of the abducted children are forced to perform gruesome acts and are usually brainwashed when initiated in the LRA. (Photo: Per-Anders Pettersson)....
