Between 1986 and 2006, some 75,000 people were abducted in northern Uganda. The fate of several thousand remains unknown, with the ICRC estimating that more than 12,000 may still be missing. Their families live in uncertainty, unable to truly mourn, hoping they may return. An ICRC programme has been helping them cope with their pain and move forward. On 21 August, 500 people attended a remembrance ceremony in the village of Kamama.
