Evaline stayed for a week with no food or medicine in another LRA camp. The soldiers told her that if she could not walk, she would be killed. After she escaped, government soldiers found her on an abandoned battlefield and took her to a hospital.
Her injuries were so severe that she was unable to get the necessary treatment in Uganda. Children's Medical Missions heard of Evaline's tragic story and flew her to Ft. Wayne, Indiana. So far Evelyn has had four surgeries to reconstruct her face, with two more planned for before she goes back to Uganda.
Lynn, the woman in Indiana who has taken in Evaline while she receives treatment, says, "She's amazing. ... She has a very, very strong spirit."
