The King Salman Humanitarian Aid And Relief Center (KSRelief) on Sunday carried out a recreational trip for 27 children to the Marib General Park.
The director of the project to rehabilitate children affected by the Yemeni conflict, Abdulrahman Al-Qubati, said that the visit hopes to “rehabilitate the children psychologically and socially.”
Al-Qubati added that the trip is the first phase of the seventh and eighth launched by the center helping 80 affected child soldiers.
He stressed that children are living in a different atmosphere, from being deprived of fun during their recruitment by the Houthi rebels, and such trips are working to enhance their childhood as a remedial step to get rid oftrauma they suffered due to acting as human shields in armed conflict.
KSRelief said it was working to rehabilitate 241 children who had been recruited and affected by the rehabilitation project for child soldiers.
