Waiting in Northern Uganda...

...for far too long. Answer this darling little girl's phone call.

Please go to Enough Project & read about the LRA & what they have wrought in northern Uganda. All of the "waiting" countries in this week's blog posts border each other. One conflict bleeds into another, while possessing unique characteristics. Many of you know about the "night commuter" children in northern Uganda (see Oprah link). The conflict remains in flux, Joseph Kony, leader of the LRA is on the run. Please visit Enough & partner Resolve Uganda to help. Because you can help & it costs not one cent.

Since mid-2002, the LRA has abducted an estimated 12,000 children, who have then been subjected to - or forced to witness or commit - atrocities that compel them to remain with the LRA as fighters, porters, or "wives".
