Child protection supplies were distributed to 30,000 children and 6,000 pregnant women and lactating women displaced by flooding. Over 1,400 flood-displaced people received psychosocial support. Forty community psychosocial workers and four counsellors received training, and 300 children and family members were counselled. Approximately 7,500 children associated with armed forces and armed groups and 2,500 other vulnerable children are being supported by the community-based reintegration programme. A referral mechanism for children affected by armed conflict has been established in 24 districts. Peace and reconciliation initiatives have been organized in 34 districts. Child-protection sub-cluster members in 20 districts have been trained on child protection in emergencies issues. Some 1,000 teachers in 20 most-affected districts benefited from mine-risk education. The government has designed a national strategic framework for assistance to victims of explosive devices. Some 202 child rights violations were documented.
