The charity Hope and Homes for Children finds alternative, high quality family based care for vulnerable children, who otherwise would be in orphanages. Their work is now recognized as best practice by UNICEF and the World Health Organisation.
Alison commented, “For children in vulnerable families around the world, Coronavirus is not just a health crisis, it has placed children at urgent risk of losing their childhoods and the people who love them to the neglect of an orphanage.
Children who are already confined to orphanages face increased levels of abuse, harm and infection due to staff shortages. These children are voiceless, forgotten. They urgently need our help.
Supporting Hope and Homes for Children is making it possible for the Charity’s skilled and dedicated local teams on the ground to continue to keep families together and children safe from institutions through the crisis.
At the same time, the Charity are making the case more strongly than ever to governments that children belong in families both now and during the recovery from the pandemic.”
