Conflict has broken out in a fictional central African country. Government and peacekeeping forces have clashed with rebels for the past week and there seems to be no end to the violence in sight. Well Town is on the outskirts of the conflict, yet villagers have started to hear gunfire off in the forest and a rebel checkpoint has been set up just outside of the town on the other side of the river. Uncertainty plagues the community, leaving many villagers scared and questioning what to do next.
Conflict affects a community in many different ways. A child’s experience in conflict has a ripple effect that extends to their family and community.
