|In northern Uganda, children have been caught in the crossfire of a 22-year civil war. They are kidnapped by rebels and forced to fight — both against government soldiers, and their own communities. They are beaten, mutilated, raped and forced to commit atrocities, often against their own families.|
In Uganda, World Vision helps these children overcome the trauma of living in this war zone. Worldwide, we are advocating for peace on behalf of these children.
