Northern Uganda has endured 20 years of brutal civil war – a conflict that enslaved thousands of child soldiers and created 1.6 million refugees. A fragile ceasefire has existed since the summer of 2006 and the country is now looking to the international community to help solve the many problems created by war: the cult-like Lord’s Resistance Army perpetrated massacres and mutilations, forcing girls to be sex slaves and brainwashing the boys to become brutal killers. Aid agencies such as Plan Canada are now helping to rebuild the communities and infrastructure destroyed by 2 decades of turmoil and unrest.
