Foster care for children affected by COVID-19

Care for Children has now completed its training programme for the staff of two orphanages (Hanoi and Thái Nguyên) in Vietnam - giving key personnel the knowledge and skills needed to set up and run a foster care programme. Once COVID restrictions allow, Care for Children’s training team - based in Hanoi - will start providing twice monthly on-site coaching to walk the new foster care teams through their first family placements.

This could not come at a better time. The current pandemic has the potential to vastly swell the amount of children inhabiting the country’s orphanages. According to government reports, some 1,500 children have been orphaned by COVID in Ho Chi Minh City alone. For those who cannot be placed with their extended family, it is our hope that they can be placed with local foster families instead of being referred to government orphanages. 

This is the case in Thailand where we have been training the government since 2012. We hope Vietnam can follow in the foot-steps of Thailand, which has embraced foster care as a positive alternative to orphanages.

This pandemic reminds us all that children are far better off in safe, secure and loving family environments.

Make sure you keep connected with the project in 2022, as we roll-out our training to orphanages right across Vietnam. Thank you for your support.
