Lord’s Resistance Army
October 16, 2011 § Leave a comment
When the Obama Administration sent troops into Africa to help the fight against the Lord’s Resistance Army, I needed to produce a map showing where they LRA operates—and fast. I immediately turned to Reliefweb, which coordinates information from humanitarian aid organizations, and to OCHA, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs at the U.N.
Reliefweb and OHCA provide detailed and up-to-date information on all kinds of humanitarian crises, including atrocities and displacement brought about by the LRA. OCHA frequently updates the map shown below with details on the LRA’s attacks and their effects.
