Uganda after Kony: Paulina Acayo’s story
June 21, 2012
By The IRC
Poverty, alcoholism and domestic violence are common in villages in northern Uganda that are recovering from the long and brutal Lord’s Resistance Army conflict.
This is the fourth in a series of stories shared by women who are rebuilding their lives after the long and brutal Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) conflict in northern Uganda. A 2006 cease-fire agreement between the Ugandan government and LRA rebel leader Joseph Kony brought relative peace to the region. Families who were displaced into camps, some for decades, have now returned home, but their communities are still recovering. The International Rescue Committee is helping them start anew.
