In Uganda a civil war between the national army and rebel forces has been raging for years. The north and the south of the country are still suffering from the consequences of this terrible conflict. Mutual trust is non-existent and conflict – over land and property – is still solved by force of arms. Mensen met een Missie has played a crucial role in supporting the peace process and the resolution of the many conflicts in the northern regions of Uganda.
