Nyalang and her little sister were taken from their home in South Sudan in broad daylight. Abductions of women and children are commonplace in the African country, where girls are vulnerable to rape and sexual assault, while boys are recruited as soldiers.⁣

“After we were abducted, we walked for more than 14 days through the bushes,” says Nyalang. “We barely had anything to eat or to drink. Once I asked for water for my little sister. I was beaten.”⁣

Thankfully, our colleagues from @unicef helped secure Nyalang’s release and reunite her with her family, although a year on, the two are still struggling to cope with the trauma they endured. ⁣

The has verified at least 266,000 grave violations against children in conflict since 2005, including abductions, killings, recruitments as soldiers and rape.⁣

Join us in calling for children living in conflict to be protected. They are and perpetrators must be held to account.⁣
