The whole world watches as our children die.

Nobody cares anymore - if they did then someone would have come and stopped the war. Then we could go home and live and work to feed our children and earn money to send then to school. We cannot afford to buy medicine for our dying children – in the name of God, please someone help us before we all die.”

Mary,

Mother of seven children & three orphans,

Aware Camp, Gulu district, northern Uganda.
