A new UN initiative aims to help thousands of youngsters in northern Uganda suffering from trauma after being forced onto the battlefield as soldiers.

American artist Ross Bleckner is the first ever Fine Art goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, and he has been to the war-torn African nation to work with the children there.

Their artwork is being sold at UN headquarters in New York.
