MY BIRO SKETCH TITLED : REFUGE!!!
No country in the world has taken more refugees over the past 12 months than Uganda
As more than 1,000 children continue to flee South Sudan, on average every day in search of safety, the region’s refugee crisis has become a children’s crisis, UNICEF said today, on World Refugee Day.
It said Italian social workers told the agency some boys and girls were sexually assaulted and forced into prostitution in Libya, while some girls arriving in Italy were pregnant as a result of rape.
“If you try to run they shoot you and you die. If you stop working, they beat you. It was just like the slave trade,” 16-year old Aimamo told Unicef. “Once I was just resting for five minutes, and a man beat me with a cane. After working, they lock you inside,” he said, describing conditions on the farm in Libya where he worked for two months with his brother to pay the smugglers.
The number of unaccompanied children travelling from north Africa to Italy so far this year is more than double that of a year earlier, Unicef said, adding that it could not say why the numbers had spiked.
Christopher Tidey, a Unicef spokesman, said girls from Nigeria told him they fled to Europe to escape early marriage, while a boy from Somalia said his family sent him away after al-Shabaab threatened to recruit him.
More than one million children have been forced from their homes in South Sudan, often amid horrific violence,”
Extreme poverty is a major motivator as well,” Tidey said. “I met boys from countries like Gambia who made the trip basically because their families were so poor that the older ones were being sent to Europe effectively to try and earn money to send back home.”
