Liberia’s Ambassador to the UN Underscores the Need to Address Funding Gaps to Rehabilitate Children Affected by Armed Conflicts Globally



Ambassador. Dee-Maxwell S. Kemayah Says there is a dire need to address the funding gaps for the rehabilitation and reintegration of children affected by armed conflicts globally.
Ambassador Kemayah said adequate funding will support governments, regional and sub-
regional organizations; in building child and social protection capacity, and formulating
prevention strategies.
Ambassador Kemayah described as regrettable, the record rise in the abduction; killing and
maiming of children globally; as well as attacks on schools; hospitals; and the denial of
humanitarian access to children. The uncomfortable truth remains- that; the scale and severity of the violations being committed against children continue to be unabated in several regions of the world; with wanton disregard for international law; as well as international norms; with the future of millions of children living in countries affected by armed conflict; remaining at risk.

The Liberian Envoy was speaking at the United Nations Security Council Open Debate on
Children in Armed Conflict on Friday, August 2, 2019, at the United Nations Headquarters in
New York.
Marking  the tenth (10th ) anniversary of Security Council Resolution 1882 on Children and Armed
Conflict (2009); Ambassador Kemayah called on the Council to reinforce its provision that all parties to armed conflicts must adhere to the obligations applicable to them under international law.
Ambassador Kemayah used the debate to highlight that the Republic of Liberia, having transitioned from conflict to peace, and considering its huge youthful population has developed through its National Flagship Development Plan-The Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD); programs to strengthen child and social protection.
Within the ambit of our National Flagship Development Plan-The Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD); the Government of Liberia under the Leadership of  Dr. George Manneh Weah; espouses the promotion of democracy; good governance; respect for human rights; justice and the rule of Law. Hence;
having transitioned from conflict to peace, and considering that the youth which constitute 63% of our population are the building blocks for the sustainability of Peace, Security, Democracy and Development in our country; the Government of Liberia; has at the core of its Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD); programs to strengthen child and social protection.
Ambassador Kemayah further stated that the programs are also complemented by other child related initiatives in Liberia; including, but not limited to the enactment of the “Children’s Law”; and the establishment of the Women and Children Protection Section at the Liberia National Police (LNP).
The Liberian Ambassador to the United Nations then commended the hard work of the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Ms. Virginia Gamba; and particularly lauded the new initiative launched in April of this year under the campaign: “ACT to Protect Children Affected by Armed Conflict”. This initiative seeks to generate greater awareness and action to improve the protection of children affected by armed conflict.
Ambassador Kemayah has meanwhile  express the Government of Liberia support for this commendable campaign “ACT to Protect Children Affected by Armed Conflict”.
