A patient is administered medicine at this governmental health clinic near the Unyama Internally Displaced PeopleÕs (IDPs) camp. These types of clinics in Northern Uganda have limited amounts of medicine and can almost never satisfy the enormous demand from the local patients. The war in Northern Uganda began in 1986 between the LordÕs Resistance Army (LRA) and the Ugandan PeopleÕs Defense Forces (UPDF). The LRA has reigned terror and carnage on Northern Uganda and Southern Sudan ever since. The rebels commonly abduct children to fuel their personnel needs and quickly turn them into soldiers, porters and sexual slaves. The ongoing war has significantly damaged the region and has left an ongoing burden on the local population. Unyama (off Kitgum Road North) Gulu District, Uganda, Africa.
