    These kids live in one of the Internally Displaced Person camps in and around Kitgum in Northern Uganda. The area is extremely insecure from persistent attacks from the Lords Resistance Army, which result in abductions, rapes and killings. Each night many people within the Kigum town area come into night shelters to sleep as a form of protection against LRA incursions. It's an extraordinary sight to see the roads crammed with people carrying bedding every evenning.
