WFWP UN Internship report

September 27, 2014

This is an additional point worthy to mention that was made during one of the sessions in the Geneva UN, on Sept 17
Our friends Jimun and Je-Ok are reporting on these sessions, they are currently doing an internship with WFWPI in the UN Geneva offices;
"During the event “Poverty & Family Breakdown” at the Human Rights Council, Mr. Jean Claude Legrand, UNICEF Regional Child Protection Advisor, mentioned that 8 million children are living in orphanages worldwide. Mr. Legrand said that in some regions 9 out of 10 children in orphanages actually do have parents. Poverty is often a reason why these children are living in orphanages. Mr. Legrand emphasized that family centered policies are needed and that the separation of families should be the last resource."
