* UNICEF: One year later, healing the scars of war in Lebanon
* Shoot Date: Various

A year has passed since a 34 day war broke out between Hezbollah and Israel, plunging Lebanon into a sudden and intense humanitarian emergency. The conflict killed over 1000 people in Lebanon, injured more than 4,000 and forced 900,000 to flee their homes in the south of the country.
UNICEF and its partners rapidly responded to provide families with clean water, essential paediatric medicines and vaccines, hygiene kits and other supplies critical to keeping children healthy in displacement conditions. One of the biggest physical threats to children came in the form of one million cluster bomblets. UNICEF immediately began distributing warning information with a simple message: “If you see an unfamiliar object, don’t approach, don’t touch, and report it to the authorities.”
One of the major areas of work for UNICEF has been to restore drinking water supply for children and their families in the south of Lebanon. In addition to progress in rebuilding infrastructure, UNICEF and its partners have been working to restore normalcy to children’s lives through school, as well as recreational and self-expression activities. Christine, aged 13, lives in the Nabatiyeh area of south Lebanon. She is participating in a special summer program supported by UNICEF and run by partner NGO InterSOS. She and her peers have been coming to a cultural community centre each morning to learn about a specific topic, ranging from first aid to caring for the environment.
(INSERT CHRISTINE SOUNDBYTE #1 a) (in Arabic): “Although children are changing a lot, they are still afraid. During the war, there was a lot of bombarding, a lot of heavy noises that were really frightening, so this is why I think they can’t take this out of their minds As Lebanon continues to recover from last year’s war while struggling to cope with current instability, UNICEF’s support of community-based initiatives like this one are more important than ever.
(INSERT SOUNDBYTE #4 – Zahra, 12 years old (in English): I came here for two days and I was having much fun, I couldn’t describe it. It’s something, it’s really a magical place that everybody is thinking about and wishing to come here.”)
Promoting tolerance and peace between people of different religious and social backgrounds is key to stability in the country’s future – and the best place to start is with children and youth.
