CHILD SOLDIERS WEEK – MEETING WITH TROMØY GROUP

As we are on child soldiers week, yesterday 07th february, we had a meeting with international youth group in Arendal Red Cross House to talk about child soldier issues and planned what we should contribute on 12th february at the Red Hand Day.  We had time of presentation means power point and movie with story of some children who had been  soldiers in their life.

Therefore  it’s understandable to stop this manipulation of children and improve on the contrary their life, respect their right as protection, education, fondness,… Forasmuch as they are the most precious and fragile things in the world.  While as one goes along the number of child soldiers every day increase  in worldwide and more than three hundred thousand children Boys and Girls under the age 18 are abducted  or forced into fighting wars;  used as commanders, fighters, detectors, porters, sex slaves to guarantee daily food, money, survival,… These children are sent to destructive military battles, they are reduced to being slaves for their commanders; female child soldiers often become victims of sexual abuse.  Although, it’s unbelievable and horrific, children are not soldiers.  We have to protest using child soldiers;  and contribute on Red Hand day (12th february) as symbol to say no to child recruitment and the use of child soldiers. It’s will be an effective way to put pressure on gorvenments and non-governmental armed groups which use child soldiers. Those who still recruit people younger than 18 years of age should no longer be exempt from punishnment.

 Stop using child soldiers  

 

 ENJOYING QUIZ GAME WITH HISØY GROUP 10 February 2011

 This last thursday we enjoyed well with same youth member of Red Cross multinational group, we got before instructions about how they should be   member of group and we was impatient to find out what Magnus had planned as quiz games.  Afterwards a quiz has been enrolled good divided in five groups by two person;  the goal was to find out the names of differents drawing with three minutes by question which comprise of  six questions; it was looks like a really kids games but it was interesting and funny even if there was same difficultes questions like to find the symbol of different Aust-Agder Comune.  Otherwise, those time means that we should not ignore  the way to be happy of entertainment as hobby because it’s very important in our life and it was as well a way to know and communicate each other.

RED HAND DAY ON 12th February 2011

On saturday at Arendal city in front of Culture House we had made stand with Tromøy youth group from twelve o’clock to three PM in order to contribute in the initiative to stop the use of child soldiers ” International Red Hand Day” about en hundre tretten red hand agree by soaking their hand to red colour and getting stain on a tablecloth in order to refuse the recruitment and use of children under 18 in armed conflicts by armed groups even regular government forces. They were curious to know what happen with almost citizen around with one red hand and after message;  they are agreed directly and did also. It was successful day. I should say it’s since 2002 the Red Hand Day has been celebrated annually and worldwide whereby it’s way to draw attention to the situation of child soldiers.

 

RESCUE EXERCISE IN GRANESTUA PLACE ON 16th February 2011

  This wednesday we have been in Granestua with Red Cross Rescue Team with also all materials we will need. Arriving about  6Pm45 place surrounding by big forest, so we have been divided in three group and got different way by an objective to know  how we should search out missing persons in forest with bad area   lots of wind, so cold, too much snow by use of map and following the instruction from chief.

Otherwise, it was  an interesting exercise whereby I pretended to have broken my leg with intention to see what’s will be happen and how they will manage to help, rescue and how they could provide aid in darkness  in using their own  materials in few time. Formidable and impressible way system they done. I should say they are Expert Rescue Volunteer Team.
