August 28 2002
Gulu/Uganda (28 August 2002) - In the past fifteen years rebel groups have abducted thousands of children in northern Uganda to abuse them as soldiers, slaves and "brides". With the military conflict escalating in the last few months, large numbers of these children have regained their freedom. In response to these dramatic developments, SOS Children's Villages has established an emergency aid centre in Gulu city to take in abandoned children.
