This is story is reported by 20 years old Nancy Auma: I was 17 years and was abducted by the LRA when I was 6 months pregnant, That day, the LRA rebels failed to abduct other children and they blamed it on me that my pregnancy was their bad luck and that I should be killed. 3 rebels with knives and razor blades started cutting off my ears, my nose and my lips. I was beaten; they kicked my stomach and left me with a wrapped paper with my ears, nose and lips to take it to the government soldiers. I was taken to the hospital and got treated. But I lost my dignity, even the father of my child rejected me because I was so deformed. In 2008, staff of African Youth Initiative Network came to my home and told me they got support from UN Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) and they are assisting people who got injuries due to LRA crimes. They brought me to the hospital where I received lips reconstructions. That was the first time I saw something good happened to me.
