EXCLUSIVE: Invisible Children Documentary (2009-11-20)
How to Help the Invisible Children in Uganda, Africa
The Invisible Children documentary was filmed by three college students Bobby Bailey, Laren Poole and Jason Russell who decided to go to Africa, and filmed the horrors on parts of that continent. Some facts:
- Life expectancy is only 46 years for the average person in Uganda.
- Since 1987, 95% of the population has been displaced due to the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).
- 1000 people die every week from disease, poor living conditions and violence.
- There are 300,000 child soldiers in the world and 30,000 of these are in Uganda, making up 80% of the LRA.
- Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Jan Egeland stated, “I cannot find any other part of the world that is having an emergency on the scale of Uganda, that is getting such little international attention.” Adding that it is "worse than Iraq", and a "moral outrage".
- Kony is now top of the International Criminal Courts warrant list and alone is wanted for 33 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
- Every hour 7 more women are raped. 168 women are raped each day.
- By this time tomorrow, 12 more children will have died in Uganda.
Absorb as much information about the war as you can.Use websites.
Spread awareness.Tell everyone you know about The Invisible Children, spread information about the organisation on news groups,social media, supermarket et cetera.
Participate in the 25 event.On April 25th, you can join the movement and help to spread awareness by staying silent for a whole day. The goal is for each participant to raise for the cause by the silence, but simply refraining from speaking is a start.
Find groups in your community or online focused on helping the Invisible Children.If there is not, you can start your own group. All you need is:
- Others who support the cause
- A meeting place (school, library, coffee shop, house, park etc.) and a time.
Focus on one upcoming event to either plan or take part in and assign everyone to different tasks.One great event is Gulu walk. It is held every year to raise money and awareness for the growing situation in Uganda.
- You will have now learned about the situation in Uganda, spread awareness and assembled a core group of willing and dedicated members of your task force.
