Yemen: Street Children Taught HIV Prevention
July 24, 2008
On Wednesday, Social Orientation House taught 60 street children in Hodeidah about HIV prevention in a UNICEF-funded session. The effort also aimed to build the children's problem-solving skills to help them leave the streets. The group is important to reach because street children are often targeted for trafficking and extortion, said al-Hasan Taher, the deputy governor.
