Children in Conflict Face Grave Rights Violations - UNICEF Says
« on: December 28, 2018, 09:06:48 AM »

Violence and insecurity have forced more than 28 million children from their homes in 2018, UNICEF said in a news release Thursday.

The U.N. children's fund said it had responded to more than 300 emergencies to help children caught in many of the 40 armed conflicts raging around the world.

UNICEF said children had been tortured, raped, used as human shields or suicide bombers, recruited as child soldiers and subjected to a myriad of other atrocities by armed groups.

While fighting has killed and maimed tens of thousands of children, UNICEF said many more had died from the indirect consequences of conflict, rather than the war itself. For instance, it noted, a child dies of preventable diseases every 10 minutes in Yemen, site of the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Caryl Stern, president and chief executive officer of UNICEF USA, told VOA that food insecurity had caused the rate of severe acute malnutrition to rise, with one in four children around the world being malnourished.

"For example, the Central African Republic, there has been such a dramatic resurgence in the fighting there so two out of three kids are in need of humanitarian assistance in CAR right now," Stern said. "And 43,000 children below age 5, they are projected to face an extremely elevated risk of death due to severe acute malnutrition."

UNICEF said escalating fighting and attacks on schools and teachers in Cameroon and in the border regions of Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger had deprived millions of children of an education. Similarly, it said, conflict in the Lake Chad Basin is putting the education of 3.5 million children at risk.
