이스마엘 전 소년병의 이야기 출판 행사를 연 유니세프

* UNICEF hosts book launch for Ishmael Beah, former child soldier 26-year-old Ishmael Beah is no stranger to talking before an audience. As an advocate for the plight of child soldiers, he has travelled the world speaking out and helping to galvanize the international efforts to rehabilitate children caught in conflict. Last night at the UNICEF headquarters in New York, Ishmael presented his book A Long Way Gone. SOUNDBYTE (ENGLISH): Ishmael Beah, Author ‘A Long Way Gone’: "What this book actually does, it goes in depth about how a child is brought into this war and what that does to them. And also equally and very importantly, how this child can be healed and regain their life again and take charge if the opportunities are in place or the centres that need to do this are in place, which is the work that UNICEF does." As young boy in Sierra Leone, Ishmael’s parents were killed and he was forcibly recruited as a soldier during the civil war that plagued his nation. For years, Ishmael was forced to carry and use weapons. He was exposed to drugs and other horrors of war, including watching several of his own friends die in the fighting. His rehabilitation at the age of 16 proved both painful and difficult for him. His is the story of more than 250, 000 children worldwide who are currently involved in combat. SOUNDBYTE (ENGLISH): Ishmael Beah, Author ‘A Long Way Gone’: "It’s a small price to pay, remembering these difficult memories, to expose this so that the children as we speak who are being used as soldiers or who are going through what I went through can be helped." In addition to being distributed at booksellers, A Long Way Gone will be sold at all Starbucks coffee houses locations in the US. Starbucks will donate a portion of the proceeds back to UNICEF programs which focus on the rehabilitation of child soldiers. SOUNDBYTE (ENGLISH): Ishmael Beah, Author ‘A Long Way Gone’: "All human beings have the capacity to lose their humanity. We are capable of regaining our humanity when given the help and support we need."
