Thousands of children in Kasaï have been associated with militias and experienced atrocities. Violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Kasaï region has inflicted a devastating toll on children since fighting flared in August 2016. Children are being used by militias in combat to fight and kill, and as human shields. UNICEF supports two centers in Kananga helping children formerly associated with militias to make the transition back to their families and communities.
As of May 2018, UNICEF has assisted 1,600 children formerly associated with militias. Discover some of their stories:
