"Drug War" Children: The Impact of the Philippine Government's "Drug War" on the Lives of Filipino Children - a talk by Carlos Conde (Human Rights Watch).

Children are particularly vulnerable in the "drug war" in the Philippines that has affected mostly poor families since it began three years ago. In this talk, Human Rights Watch Philippines researcher Carlos Conde shares the economic and psychological impact of the "drug war" on children who lost their loved ones, and how the government, NGOs, civil society groups, journalists and members of the clergy are responding to these children's needs.
