There are 20,000 street-connected children (children who live or work on the street without appropriate adult supervision) throughout Sierra Leone. Poverty, not death, is the number one reason that children are separated from their families in Sierra Leone.
Two years ago, after successfully reintegrating every child placed in Residential Care with a loving family, Helping Children Worldwide and the Child Reintegration Centre (CRC) in Sierra Leone decided to tackle the widespread issue of family separation (often called the Orphan Crisis) in a way that would ultimately bring every child off the street. We asked you to imagine the idea of "NO MORE ORPHANS" in Sierra Leone.
This campaign is the next step on the journey home for orphans and vulnerable children. This is how "No More Orphans" in Sierra Leone becomes a reality!
