(Huffington Post) – Conflict damages children in so many ways but one of the most injurious is when the very conditions created by war then lead to their recruitment into armed groups and the perpetuation of harm. In South Sudan today, it is estimated by the U.N. that nine thousand children are serving in some form of armed force or group. Amidst all the warnings of a humanitarian food crisis brought about by conflict, these kinds of violations facing children should not be forgotten.
