Democratic Republic of the Congo: Protecting Children in Armed Conflict: Voices from the field
UN Office of the SRSG for Children and Armed Conflict – September 21, 2017

As we speak, thousands of children, both boys and girls, continue to suffer and witness acts of violence by parties to conflict who continue to disregard international humanitarian and human rights obligations and standards.
