" Worst place to be a Child"..during its 20 year civil war an estimated 30,000-60,000 children were abducted by LRA rebels and forced to become child soldiers , sex slaves or killed. Approximately 1.5 million inhabitants were forcibly relocated into overcrowded , disease ridden IDP camps , miles from their original homes and farms .its is estimated approximately 1000 people a week died in the camps . The damage to to families , personal identity and psychological well being is incalculable . The children have suffered the most ; many are war or AIDS orphans , and live with elderly grandparents ; in child headed household or on the street .Most have never been allowed to experience a normal childhood and and many witnessed their siblings abductions or the death of their parents.
