Reintegration to Families
LEEDO firmly believes that a shelter is a far better place for a child to live than on the streets and that the most desirable abode can be none other than with his or her own family members. Children’s mental and emotional states are best served by their family, and in particular, their parents. So, integral to our work is the FAMILY RE-INTEGRATION programme that helps children return to their families.
When a child is rescued from the streets, we provide basic services (i.e. food, shelter, healthcare) and with the aid of police and other linkages, we seek out his or her family. When we find the family, we reunite the child and try to ensure a better life. Our greatest joy and inspiration has been from reintegrating approximately 300 children in the past year.
