Uganda and South Sudan: War Trauma
Inflicted by "Lord's Resistance Army" Rebels

As I was documenting destruction in the Amuru "Internally Displaced People's" (IDP) Camp and Trading Center in northern Uganda, the man on the right walked up to me and wanted to participate. In the culture of the Acholi tribe his hand gesture indicates suffering pain and grief. The second man's refuge is psychosis; who knows what happened to his psyche during more than twenty years of war and atrocities inflicted by "Lord's Resistance Army" (LRA) rebels on the people in northern Uganda and southern South Sudan.
