Jacqueline lives with her Mama and her 8 siblings in a mud hut.
The father of the family died in 1984 when the LRA ambushed the vehicle he was traveling in. Jacqueline herself fell prey to a vehicle ambush in 2002 when traveling to Gulu to try and buy some cheaper food. The LRA took some of the men, but Jacqueline herself was left alone.
Her five year old brother and her mother were also traveling in car that was ambushed by the LRA. Her brother was killed in the initial bombing. Her mother was injured in the ribs but managed to survive.
Jacqueline used to work many miles to the "Christ the King" night shelter to avoid being kidnapped. She feels she can sleep safely now because the army barracks are so close to her home.
She contributes to the family's income by brewing a local moonshine that is popular with the local soldiers. She makes about 20,000 ($US 10.81) shillings a month from the brew.
She buys food from other people in the village, but usual only in small amounts because she cannot a whole sack of rice, for example.
She often grinds the maize that she gets between two large stones. This has, unfortunately, forced the 2nd born of the family into hospital as little grains of stone have built up is his intestines and is causing him great pain. The operation will cost 30,000 ($US 16.22) shillings. The family is unsure where they will get the money.
She wants Joseph Kony - the leader of the LRA - to be arrested and all the soldiers to come home so that they can live together as a community again.
