People living in Lira, in the northern region of Uganda, have been severely affected by landmines and UXOs which were scattered all over the area throughout the civil war that lasted for the past 20 years. Many people were severely injured, and had to have their legs and/or arms amputated.

As we have reported in the last three reports, AAR Japan, in cooperation with ULSA (Uganda Landmine Survivors Association), had been supporting 30 victims financially by providing start-up kits for those willing to take up a business on their own. Also, AAR Japan had been providing medical support to 15 victims, who need prosthetic limbs or physical rehabilitation in order to move around freely again.

AAR Japan and ULSA had completed this project and we are now considering to start the new victims assistance project at the different area of Uganda. We will do our best to keep helping people in Uganda. We very much appreciate all your help so far and donations afforded through GlobalGiving. Thank you for your time.
