Invisible Children

14 December 2005

A couple of days ago, I found this website: www.invisiblechildren.com .Three American students made a documentary on child soldiers in Uganda. These children are invisible because they don’t seem to appear anywhere on the world’s map, in people’s minds. I was shocked by the trailer, by the testimonies of the children.

Today, the UNICEF released its annual report on the state of the world’s children. According to this report hundred of millions are left completely defenceless, helpless. The UNICEF calls them “Invisible Children”. The figures are literally appalling.

I have been on the UNICEF website, I have watched the videos, I have read the report and I still don’t know what to say.


This blogpost is to spread awareness, to ask you to go on the website and read the report.
