Description : Between January and May 2014, a total of 240 unaccompanied children, including 84 formerly associated with armed forces or groups, were reunited with their families by the ICRC, in some cases in other countries.
"I am so happy I found my family and friends", says the young man in the red trousers, standing close to his relatives. "It's only when you are far away from home that you realize how important your family is. I am also happy to return to school and see my friends."
