Kids in Dungu

Dungu is the chief town in the northern part of Haut Uele. The town has taken in many of families from the surrounding countryside who have fled the LRA. Three days after these pictures were taken two bands of LRA attacked the northern part of the town in the middle of the night killing several people with machetes. The use knives and clubs when they attack civilians to save ammunition and to make less noise.

I was there to review our child protection and emergency programmes. We are helping children that have escaped the LRA to find their families. Another programme is providing basic shelter and clean water to the people who have fled their homes.

Curious children where everywhere.
