17-24 August 2012: UNICEF correspondent Suzanne Beukes reports on UNICEF Advocate for Children Affected by War Ishmael Beah’s recent visit to the Central African Republic, where 10 children were released from armed groups.

“I have seen terrible things,” says 16-year-old Abdelkarim. “I have seen my friend’s body on the ground.”

Until last week, Abdelkarim was a child soldier with the armed group Convention of Patriots for Justice and Peace in Central African Republic. He was one of 10 child soldiers to be released by the group into the care of a UNICEF-supported rehabilitation centre.

UNICEF Ambassador and former child soldier Ishmael Beah was there to witness their release and offer support and advice.

Watch this video on Ishmael’s recent mission for UNICEF to find out how we are helping Abdelkarim and children like him in the difficult road ahead.”
