JEDDAH: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has organized a recreational trip to the Marib General Park for 27 children who were recruited by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia and involved in clashes.
The trip will involve activities of the second phase of the rehabilitation project for these former child soldiers. The children’s trip is conducted under the supervision of specialists from the local partner Wethaq civil orientation, to help children psychologically after the Houthis’ forced recruitment.
The project in previous stages targeted 161 children recruited from several Yemeni governorates. They received psychosocial, social and educational rehabilitation according to the program prepared by the Center, which works to rehabilitate 2,000 children.
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.
