“I would like to give you the message that a 12 years old former Ugandan child soldier Robert has given me: “Please do your best to tell the world what is happening to us, the children. So that other children don't have to pass through this violence.” Valerie Miquel
August 2007 Valérie Miquel made a trip in the area of Gulu /frontier of Sudan at the end of the war (North of Uganda) to meet former children soldiers, visit refugee camps...In 2013 she goes back to Gulu to meet the former child soldiers and the last escaped Ugandan child soldiers (now adults) from Central Africa.
