By Odwong Wod Ayo OVER 460,000 people are still living in camps in Gulu, Kitgum and Pader districts in northern Uganda. John Baptist Odama, the Archbishop of Gulu Archdiocese, last week said this while opening a one-day sharing workshop organised by the Catholic Association of Professionals of Uganda, Gulu Archdiocese branch. It was held at the Catechists Training Centre in Gulu. Odama told participants that the workshop was aimed at helping association members understand and address the challenges facing the association in its evangelisation crusade. He said the workshop was also intended to help the association members discuss and find solutions to challenges by mushrooming juxe-box churches across the region. Odama urged Christians to educate their children about the right religion to follow. He said people in the north were traumatised, poverty stricken and ill. Odama said many people had been infected by HIV/AIDS. He called on the Acholi to work together and reconcile with people from other parts of the country. Odama said it was with unity and love that residents in the region could fast initiate and sustain development.
