The road North into the heart of a region plagued with conflict. The war in Northern Uganda began in 1986 between the LordÕs Resistance Army (LRA) and the Ugandan PeopleÕs Defense Forces (UPDF).

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. Gulu Road North, Gulu District, Uganda, Africa, December 2005 © Stephen Blake Farrington
