Child-friendly spaces for learning and playing without fear in Osh, Kyrgyzstan

After weeks of violence in southern Kyrgyzstan, Osh is beginning to witness tiny signs of a return to normal life: The streets are filling up with people and cars. Some rush to the market to buy food, others go to visit their relatives and share their blankets and clothes with those who lost everything.

But there is one vital element missing: the children. Many were sent away by their parents for safekeeping, to stay with relatives in remote villages. Only a few families have started to bring them back.

Ongoing field assessments reveal numerous problems and hardships for children and women – regardless of ethnicity – who suffered the most during the civil conflict that broke out in mid-June and now have a long way to recovery. With this in view, UNICEF has opened an operating base in Osh, 600 km form Bishkek, the Kyrgyz capital.
