  1. COULD THIS BE YOU?

  2. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR NORTHERN UGANDA: “INVISIBLE CHILDREN” INTERNALLY DISPLACED PEOPLE (IDP) CAMP

  3. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • QUICK FACTS: • 20 YEARS OF WAR • FIGHTS BETWEEN THE “LRA” LORD’S RESISTANCE ARMY AND THE UGANDAN GOVERNMENT • WAR HAS DESTROYED A LOT OF PEOPLES’ LIVES…..SEEN MOSTLY IN THE CHILDRENS’ LIVES….VERY SAD! • THE KIDS HAVE GROWN UP ONLY KNOWING A LIFE OF WAR • OUR RESPONSIBILITY MAY BE TO HELP THESE KIDS FIND EDUCATION AND A POSITIVE FUTURE…

  4. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • WHY WAR?? • TRACED BACK TO A WOMAN NAMED ALICE LAKWENA IN THE 1980’s (“LAKWENA” = SPIRIT THAT POSESSED HER) • SHE BELIEVED A “VOICE” SPOKE TO HER AND SAID “OVERTHROW THE UGANDAN GOVERNMENT” (FOR BEING UNJUST TO THE “ACHOLIS”…A TRIBE) • ALICE IS “KICKED-OUT” OF UGANDA….WHO LEADS NOW?? • JOSEPH KONY, CLAIMED TO BE ALICE’S COUSIN AND CREATES THE LRA OR “LORD’S RESISTANCE ARMY”

  5. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • WHAT DID THE LRA DO NEXT? • LOST A LOT OF SUPPORT • DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION = REBELS RESORT TO ABDUCTING CHILDREN….YES CHILDREN • CHILDREN ARE ABDUCTED DURING SCHOOL AND FROM HOMES/VILLAGES AT NIGHT • CHILDREN FORCED INTO WAR LRA LEADER: JOSEPH KONY

  6. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • WHY INNOCENT CHILDREN?? • CHILDREN CAN EASILY BE BRAINWASHED AND TOLD WHAT TO DO. • BIG ENOUGH TO CARRY A GUN • LOTS OF THEM = HUGE ARMY • 90% OF LRA IS LITTLE CHILDREN!(9 OUT OF 10 ARE KIDS!!) KIDNAPPED 6 YR. OLD

  7. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • LIFE AS A CHILD SOLDIER: • 1. MANY FORCED TO KILL THEIR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS AND OTHERS • 2. MANY ABUSED BOTH PHYSICALLY AND SEXUALLY BY ADULT LRA MEMBERS • MOST WILL BE KILLED IN WAR OR BY THE LRA • PSYCHOLOGICAL DAMAGE IS NOT “FIXABLE” FOR MOST KIDNAPPED / BRAINWASHED

  8. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR MORE OF THE SAME…. NOTICE THE FRIGHTENED LOOK

  9. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR 1986 – 1996THE WAR DEGENERATES • BECAUSE OF “HORRIFIC TACTICS”, THE INITIAL SUPPORT OF THE LRA HAS FADED… • THE PEOPLE OF UGANDA DO NOT SUPPORT THE LRA MUCH ANYMORE…..MOSTLY “FEAR THEM”. • LRA HAS NOW “WAGED TERROR” ON THE CIVILIAN POPULATION TO KEEP ATTENTION ON THEM?? • 1996 = GOVERNMENT PUT ALL N. UGANDAN PEOPLE IN CAMPS TO PROTECT THEM….TERROR STILL CONTINUES.

  10. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR WHAT IS LIFE LIKE IN THESE CAMPS??

  11. AFRICA'S LONGEST WAR • LIFE IN IDP CAMPS: • BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE (2 MILLION) IN THESE CAMPS, • MANY PEOPLE STARVE BECAUSE OF LACK OF FOOD • LACK OF WATER = DEHYDRATION = DEATH • NIGHTTIME ATTACKS CONTINUE:A. KIDS ARE STILL KIDNAPPED (MORE THAN 30,000)B. ADULTS ARE STILL KILLED EVEN WITH “PROTECTION” • DISEASE SPREADS BY DIRTY WATER, MOSQUITOS ETC..
