KSRelief organizes awareness program on child soldiers

JEDDAH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) on Saturday organized an awareness session in Yemen’s Marib governorate to highlight the danger of recruiting children in wars.
Last month, KSReleif launched the second part of the fifth and sixth phases of a rehabilitation project in Marib for children who were recruited and used by Houthi militias as child soldiers.
The child recruits rescued from the Iranian-backed Houthis will benefit from a month-long psycho-social program that aims to ease them back into normal life and eradicate the effects that Houthi recruitment had on them.
The project recently celebrated the graduation of the first group of children from the fifth and sixth phases. This group was made up of 80 children who were recruited from various Yemeni provinces.
The project is part of a KSrelief plan to rehabilitate 2,000 children who were recruited by Houthi militias in Yemen.
The initiative, called the Child Soldiers Rehabilitation Project, is described as “a qualitative program and a major achievement in the country’s crisis.”
During the first stage of the program, KSRelief also provided services to another 40 children, including those from Marib, Yemen, and Al-Jawf in Libya.
