Wereldwijd is er aandacht voor het opgroeien van kinderen in gezinsverband. De Britse organisatie ‘Hope and Homes for Children’ is zo’n organisatie.
Hope and Homes for Children is an international charity working to ensure that all children have the chance to grow up in the love of a family. Our vision is a world in which children no longer suffer institutional care.
Many children living in institutions have at least one parent, but are separated from their families as a result of poverty, conflict, disease and other social and physical causes. Evidence shows that these children have dramatically reduced opportunities in life and that their ability to develop to their full potential is severely undermined. The effects of institutionalisation on children can last a lifetime.
