Following on from UNICEF’s report yesterday that there were already over 3,700 Ebola orphans in West Africa, Street Child is announcing a pledge to immediately commence long-term support to 1,000 children orphaned by Ebola.
The charity will ensure, in the short term, that children have their basic rights met, especially in terms of nutrition and psycho-social care. Longer term, Street Child will ensure that every child is settled in a sustainable, caring family environment and, critically, is able to access education. The majority of families who take in Ebola orphans will receive family business support to help sustainably grow their incomes.
