Little New Faces of Northern Uganda
For two decades, the children of northern Uganda lived in fear of abduction and death by Joseph Konys’ LRA. Indeed, many were brutally killed and hundreds others abducted. It’s estimated that over 30.000 children were abducted by LRA.
But with the return of relative peace over the last 4 years, there’s a ray of hope beaming in the faces of children from northern Uganda. They can now sleep, go to school, watch a movie, play, laugh and hope for a better future.
Excellent. Exemplary. Edward, you are most needed in this world.

thank you so much!
“They can now sleep…” My god, I have even take sleep for granted my whole life. I now must cherish this ritual I am so fortunate to have!!
These are really amazing photos and very enlightening, thank you for sharing!
Echcwalu, I adore your photos. Please keep these eyes fixed on many issues which the whole world should see . Thanx for sharing these. Be assured of my prayers for you!
Wow!!! These photos are amazing!!!
Kony is still operating though isn’t he Edward?
He’s still operating but not in uganda anymore. He’s been operating in Southern Sudan and more especially Central African Republic for the last 6-7 years. Northern Uganda has since then been peaceful
He is truly an evil man…. the world needs to wake up and stop him!
Indeed. But whats in for them? At least Libya had OIL
Sadly you are absolutely right..but if enough indivduals know then they will demand action.. and he doesn’t care about wars …he is on no-one’s side except his own.
I hope you are following what is happening in Syria. From the Amazon in Brazil to Toronto in Canada and Cape town-South Africa and even Moyo district in Uganda, everyone knows whats happening in that country…
But who is getting in there? No one. Its absurd how this world is run sometimes.
Indeed I am watching what’s happening in Syria Edward.. and like you wondering what action will be taken.
thank you! and thanks for visiting too! appreciated
these photos are beautiful

I love these little faces. The tiny bananas took me back! That was our main food group when traveling around Uganda!
