Northern Uganda Conflict

One of the more than 3,000 benficiaries of the food for attendance program at the Pece Prison Displaced Center in Gulu, Uganda during the monthly food distribution to displaced children March 23, 2004. Catholic Relief Services funds a project which rewards children attending school 80 percent of the month with the food. They are displaced from their homes in the countryside by activites of the Lord's Resistance Army, a ragtag group which boosts its numbers by abducting children and turning them into soldiers. The program provides six kilos of corn soya blend powder, two kilos of rice, 0.25 kilo of salt and 0.55 kilo of cooking oil. CRS distributes to about 3,650 children Gulu distributing 21,936 kilos of CSB, 7,312k of rice, 2,010 k of cooking oil and 914 kilos of salt.  (Rick D'Elia)
