Description : ICRC website, photo gallery “The ICRC commemorated the International Day of the Disappeared on 30 August in Kitgum, northern Uganda”, 31 August 2016

“A daylong event was organized to provide a platform for government representatives, civil society, development agencies and communities to reflect on their roles and responsibilities in supporting families of the missing persons.
A variety of interactive activities including a march through Kigum town, thematic music dance and drama compositions by the families of the missing and the accompaniers and their testimonies were used to vividly portray the magnitude of the crisis on those left behind.
Between 1986 and 2006, about 75,000 people, mainly aged between 5 and 20 years old, were abducted in Northern Uganda and remain missing to this day.
The ICRC recently spoke to some of the family members who continue to live with the loss of their loved ones.”
