Workers unload one of five World Food Program semi-trucks of food for residents of Awer camp for internally displaced persons 15 kilopmeters northwest of Gulu, March 25, 2004. More than 2 million people are displaced across northern Uganda, resulting from the conflict with the Lord's Resistance Army. The LRA kidnaps people from their rural homes and schools to press them into service as porters and soldiers. The conflict is entering its 18th year. (Rick D'Elia)
