* UNICEF: Kidnapped children in the Central African Republic tell their story
* 시간 : 02 min 25 secs

The Central African Republic. A country whose people face not only grinding poverty but also the threat of conflict, rape and child abductions. In the Paoua region, Souleimane Garga and his family were attacked at home by a group armed bandits. Souleimane was lucky to survive. The bullets were like rain he says. Two of his young children, Beldo and Harouna were kidnapped and held hostage in bush camps for nearly two years. With several other child hostages, they endured harsh conditions, illness and lived in fear of regular beatings. Kidnapping for ransom is an increasingly common practice of bandits in the C-A-R. Traumatised by their experience, Beldo and Harouna still refuse to enter their family home. 

SOUNDBITE: SOULEIMAN GARGA, FATHER "As soon as Beldo hears about the bandits she stops talking. Whenever she hears that word she stops talking. She tells us to keep quiet about these things. She asks for peace." Police and military personnel along with international peacekeepers are often the first to reach children who have been kidnapped, abused or require medical treatment in areas of lawlessness or conflict.
They also come into contact with underage children recruited to take up arms with local self defence militia groups.
UNICEF has begun training security and military personnel to help them recognise the needs of children, to understand child rights and prevent abuse. SOUNDBITE: Mahimbo Mdoe, UNICEF Representative in CAR "So at least you starting to get some sort of treatment and return back to normality for these children who are going through these very, very, very difficult and harsh environments." Across the Central African Republic, vast remote areas remain largely beyond the reach of the law. A decade of conflict has displaced tens of thousands of children.
Together with its partners, UNICEF is working to protect the rights of children and support the social and psychological recovery of child victims of abuse and violence.
