Apiyo Lucy was born in December, 1996 in Kinene. She is the second born in her family and has five siblings. Even though she was young during the war, she remembers attacks from the LRA Rebels. During the war, her family relocated to a IDP camp in Paicho. It was there, at the IDP camp, that her father was abducted by the rebel forces. After some time, her father was able to escape and return back to her family. The rebels sought revenge for her father escaping and came looking for his family with the intentions of killing Lucy’s mother. The rebels came and tied up her mother and took her older brother. The rebels left without killing her mom and they found her brother alive and unharmed thrown into the bush a little ways from the IDP camp.
