 Caleb stands against a backdrop of posters supporting the National Resistance Movement political party in southern Uganda in January 2018.  Deployed to northern Uganda when he was 19, the former solider said he “killed many people” while fighting in the Ugandan Bush War. “But now, I’m saved,” he said. “I’m born again.” Caleb now works as a carpenter in southern Uganda.  From 1981 to 1986, Uganda was embroiled in a civil war that pinned President Apollo Milton Obote against rebel fighters led by current President Yoweri Museveni. Obote was ultimately overthrown by Museveni’s National Resistance Army and replaced by Tito Okello.  Between 100,000 to 500,000 people died in Uganda as a result of the Ugandan Bush War. Both sides were responsible for widespread human rights abuse across the county.

 Beatrice, a small scale trader, sells produce with her family at her roadside stall in Kawangware, an informal settlement in Nairobi, Kenya.  Beatrice struggled to earn enough money to feed her children and send them to school but thanks to the grassroots initiative, which works in tandem with Oxfam GB to support low-income women working in informal sector, she is now able to afford rent, food and school fees for her children.  “Back then life was very difficult,” Beatrice said. “I often didn’t have any source of income, I depended on others and begging for help. But today I help myself.” Oxfam, 2017.

 Musa Gali wipes his face, which is partially covered with a large, cancerous tumor, during our final interview in November 2017.  The 46-year-old farmer and father of seven was diagnosed with ocular cancer, a potentially treatable condition in Uganda, at least, until the country’s only radiotherapy machine broke down in April 2016. There was no hope of saving him after.  “I have a lot of pain because of the breakdown of the machine,” he said, his voice growing more strained with every word. “If they had replaced it, I would not be in this situation now. I would not be suffering.”
