report Food for the Hungry

FHI's Uganda program is helping families fight for their lives in the wake of vicious attacks by a rebel army, and serious drought that decimated crops.
A rebel group known as the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has abducted fourteen children and killed one teenager involved in FHI's Child Sponsorship Programme. The LRA conscripts the abducted boys into its army and forces the girls to become sex partners with its soliders.

FHI staff are praising God that seven of the abducted children either escaped or were allowed to return home.
