Grace Akech Olobo is the mother to 10 children. One of her children died of chicken pocks when she was old two years old. Grace says that the chicken pocks "got turned inside out and turned on her intestines".
Her husband Robert used to work in the hospital but lost his job in a bout of layoffs. He occasionally gets work a road grader.
Grace used to run a business in her village selling second hand clothes. She financed the business with a small loan. In June 2005, the LRA rebels raided her village and took all her stock and destroyed her business. Mercifully, she has had no other interactions with the LRA.
OXFAM has given her a nine-month contract to plant trees and perform weeding. She has one month left on her contract and receives 40,000 shillings ($US 21.62) a month for her work.
She has a small plot of land where she plants potatoes. During the dry season her and her family eats but once a day. The wet season sees them eating twice a day.
She hopes that the ICC (International Criminal Court) will capture and prosecute Joseph Kony - the head of the LRA. She feels that if he is captured then he can't give orders and the LRA will collapse.
