Child soldiers

Since 1998 there have been armed conflicts involving child soldiers in more than 36 countries. Traumatic scares left on children are just one of a vast aftermath of post war problems; refugees, food shortages and mourning for lost relatives. Former child soldiers may at best have their needs forgotten and at worst be blamed by their communities for what happened. SOS Children works to hep child soldiers and other children scarred by conflict; children whose lives will never be the same.
