Uganda is a country ripped apart by 22 years of civil war, leaving 1.6 million people living in primitive refugee camps. In January 2009 an event intended to inspire possibility took place in one camp in Pader the mass wedding of six couples. They married in full wedding regalia with the help of charity worker C. Downing, who sourced dresses in the UK. 54 wedding dresses were sent from the UK & will continue to empower with a dress hire shop and a sustainable income. www.beckymatthews.co.uk www.clarestruthers.co.uK
