On 1 June 2013, fourteen children were finally reunited with their families, some of them after years of separation. The children had all been recruited into armed groups or the armed forces. Before returning home, they spent several months at a demobilization and rehabilitation centre in Bangui, where they were kept busy with games and given business or tailoring training. The aim of these activities was to help the children overcome their traumatic experience and regain as much of a normal life as possible. (Please note that the children's real names are not used.).
