James spoke very frankly to me of his time as a captured boy under the control of the LRA (Lords Resistance Army) and the devastating effects that losing his parents had on him, orphaning him when he was only 12 years old.
Orphaned by AIDS and war, children of the Acholi Tribe from 3 and up are in serious need. Total desperation. They have food only for 3 more weeks. We now have children sick. This is a matter of life and death for them. If they become dehydrated or weak, the nurses must put them on their backs and walk 18 kilometers to help. If the nurse doesn’t make it on time, the child dies from preventable diseases usually.
