Nearly 25 years that Northern Uganda has been under destruction by Lord Resistance Army (LRA), there has been a lot of stories surrounding the lives of people involved. During the Insugency, many people fled to camp for protection, but still some part of the camp were reached by LRA burning most of the camps leaving people homeless. This has to forced many families to live a borrowed live by running for a refuge in the neighboring land. Up to now most of these people has never settled peacefully. So KIF has identified these kind of people and is trying to put lives back to them.
The Northern conflict, one of Africa’s longest running, has resulted in a humanitarian crisis. The LRA was accused by the International Criminal Court of widespread human rights violations, including mutilation, torture, slavery, rape, the abduction of civilians, the use of child soldiers, and a number of massacres. By 2004, the LRA had abducted more than 20,000 children, while 1.5 million civilians had been displaced and an estimated 100,000 civilians killed
Led by the reclusive Joseph Kony, the Lord’s Resistance Army is responsible for Africa’s longest running conflict. At its peak, the rebels’ brutal insurgency displaced nearly two million people in large areas of northern Uganda. To date, the conflict has seen more than 10,000 people killed in massacres, while twice that number of children have been abducted by the LRA and forced to work as soldiers, porters and sex slaves.
