In the small African country of Uganda it has been estimated that over 25,000 children have been abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a group of militants that has plagued the Acholi region of Northern Uganda for over twenty years. The children that have been abducted are often forced to participate in the torturing and killing of fellow child captives and members of their own family.
I live in a US town of around 80,000 people. Access to healthcare has never been a major issue here. We have 30 pediatricians serving the 15,000 youth in the area. On the other hand, in the small African nation of Lesotho, there are only six pediatricians to care for the country's 800,000 children.
