Description :
The ICRC helps the children at the centre to trace their families and ensure family reunions. It also supports them prepare for a normal life back home. The ICRC provides regular in kind support to the centre, where children live in "families" of groups of boys, and receive schooling as well as partaking in activities that help them overcome their experiences, build their skills and reintegrate into civilian life (activities include painting, crafts and sports). Several children here said that they enjoyed learning to draw, and teachers said that it also helps them to release emotions they accumulated while they were with these armed groups.
