There is no other charity that has done more to support the end of the LRA conflict in the last 10 years. I've watched this organization's work since 2005 and also have been to N. Uganda to see their Rehabilitation and Recovery work first hand (FYI - the conflict is now in Congo, CAR, Sudan but they still work in the regions heavily hit my the LRA in the past). The organization is not just about rehabilitation work they also spend money on Advocacy and Awareness and some have pointed this out as a problem but to me that is a nearsighted evaluation. The political players that have the power to influence this conflict need to feel the pressure from the people so that is why advocacy campaigns are so important. If you want to put a band aide on the situation you can give money to groups that only do rehab work in Africa but i would advise to evaluate if the there is more needed for lasting change, which is what i feel is the case with the LRA that started in N.Uganda and now have spread to CAR, Congo and Sudan.
