The Facts:

  • Northern Uganda called the worst humanitartian crisis in the world today (because of the lack of attention)


  • 1.7 million people are forcibly displaced from their homes


  • An estimated 20,000-50,000 children are abducted to fight as soldiers


  • Tens of thousands of children commute nightly, walking 2 hours every day to a safe space


  • 130 people die per day in Northern Uganda due to violence



  • On April 29th in over 130 cities across the country, thousands are lying down to the demand that our government take a stand and put an end to child abduction, the need for night commuting, and war in Northern Uganda.
