A woman sells charcoal at the makeshift market in front of the Cassava Factory Internally Displaced PeopleÕs (IDP) camp. The Cassava Factory IDP is an urban settlement set up surrounding a closed down starch factory on the edge of town. It holds an estimated 5000 inhabitants. The IDP camps of Northern Uganda formed when areas in the region became unsafe for civilians to live. Clean water, sanitation, food, employment, education, moral living, and human rights have almost been entirely depleted. Furthermore, congestion within the camps has contributed to major health and living problems. With 1.6 Ð 2 million people displaced and with an almost total lack of resources to care for them, the local peopleÕs very existence physically, emotionally and culturally is at stake. The war between the LordÕs Resistance Army and the Ugandan military has been transpiring since 1986. Thousands have been killed and abducted. Lira, Lira District, Uganda, Africa.
