An estimated 445,000 civilians – or more than one in five of the estimated 2 million people in LRA-affected areas – are currently internally displaced or living as refugees. This situation has widespread implications for the stability of the region and the ability of communities to remain self-reliant and maintain hope for a brighter future.
