UGANDA: A LOST GENERATION
Susan Lambol, age 10, looks out of a window in a shelter as the sun sets in Gulu, Uganda, 2005. Susan is one of about children 20,000 that sleep in Gulu town every night, as they 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, which are abducted and used as child soldiers and sex slaves. Some children walk for hours from their home every day to sleep at Noah’s Arch, an NGO housing children in Gulu. Susan’s older sister was earlier abducted and she walks about 1.5 hours in each direction everyday from her village.
