Ugandan orphan. Sad child in an orphanage with tears running down their face. Northern Uganda is the site of an armed rebellion by the Lord's Resistance Army. The intensity of the fighting, which has increased since 2002, has led to the death of many people. Serious illnesses that have reached epidemic proportions in Africa, such as AIDS and malaria, are also responsible for the high number of orphaned children in this area. Photographed in the Gulu region of Uganda.
