July marks two years since it was officially declared that Iraqi armed forces had successfully re-taken Mosul from the so-called Islamic State, following a nine-month long bloody battle. But today, there are still thousands of people displaced and distressed as a result of the conflict in Mosul and nearby areas. This is a country where decades of war upon war have left close to seven million people at the mercy of humanitarian aid. Not even children have been spared from the violence in recent conflicts, such as the 2003 Iraq War and the subsequent takeover and fall of ISIL.Support the show.

The Forgotten Crises
The Yak Season 2 is just around the corner. However, we have fast tracked this special episode on the forgotten crises in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for Red Hand Day; the International Day against the use of Child Soldiers. The use of child soldiers is classified as a war crime under international law. However, children are frequently abducted and forced into fighting, while others choose to join forces because they are poor, hungry and feel they have no other way to survive. In this episode we hear from Sydney Morning Herald journalist David Wroe, World Vision's Brianna Piazza and some former child soldiers themselves.Support the show.
