ASSIGNMENTS: UGANDA: A LOST GENERATION
TERROR IN NORTHERN UGANDA SERIOUSLY AFFECTS CHILDREN The Lord's resistance army has brought terror to Northern Uganda for almost twenty years. About 20.000 children have been kidnapped and many forced to be child soldiers and wives to rebels. About 1.6 million people are displaced in Northern Uganda living in about 180 (IDP) camps for displaced people. The children are usually brainwashed a forced to commit gruesome acts on relatives, family and the civil population. This conflict is known as one of the worst in the world but is largely ignored by the international community.
