Dragana Strinic, Country Director Save the Children Uganda said: “This incident is a great violation to international laws governing child and human rights. We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives. The community and dozens of children will possibly remain with lifelong injuries, in addition to the toll on their mental health.”
“Children in today’s attack need urgent medical and psychological support, so that they can get back to their normal lives and education.”
“We call upon all conflicting parties to end conflict where possible and remain vigilant about the safety and wellbeing of children and the functionality of facilities that serve them.”
