Victims of War in Uganda
Humanitarian Crisis

The civil war in Uganda is producing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, brutally victimizing children.

The Ugandan rebels, so-called "Lord's Resistance Army" routinely abduct children to serve as sex slaves and fighters. Humanitarian organisations say that about 20,000 children have been abducted by the rebels over the last five years, with many taken to LRA bases in southern Sudan, where they are trained as child soldiers while the girls are turned into sex slaves. The LRA often mutilate their victims by cutting off hands, noses, ears and lips. To escape abduction, some 24,000 children hide each night in urban centers or on the streets. For more information please refer to articles on the BBC.

Eternal God, giver of love and peace,
you call your children to live together as one family;
give us grace to learn your ways and to do your will,
that we may bring justice and peace to all people,
in the name of Jesus Christ.
Create in us, your family, love so true and deep
that in this broken world
we may be a sign of unity.

Creator God,
forgive those who are perpetrating these crimes
in your name.
Bring them to true repentance and
amendment of life.
Raise up true witnesses to your love and mercy,
that all may know you as you are.
Heal the people of Uganda.

Dear God, please help these children escape from these horrors. Show them your loving kindness and mercy and help them be strong. Please guide them to safety and let them find peace and love from others.
