Orum, UGANDA

10 year old Evelyn Akanjo in Orum camp for internally displaced people (IDPs). She holds her school bag, made for her by her grandfather, which is all she has left after fleeing her village to escape from the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).
For 18 years the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels have terrorised the Northern provinces of Uganda abducting 20,000 children and forcing 1.6 million people to flee their homes. According to Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) the mortality rate among children in some areas is five times the rate internationally agreed to constitute an 'emergency out of control'. The UN's under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs has called Northern Uganda the "largest neglected humanitarian emergency in the world".
