Many in the United States are learning about Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army through an internet video that has attracted tens of millions of views. Catholic Relief Services has been working for years to help the victims of Kony and the LRA.
CRS officially opened an office in Uganda’s capital Kampala, Uganda, in 1996 to help those displaced by LRA actions. Working with the Church, CRS began providing assistance to children known as the Night Commuters. These youngsters would walk from their rural villages every evening, seeking safety in larger towns in northern Uganda where they would often shelter at Churches in order to escape the threat of abduction by the LRA.
