An Interesting webinar by the Consortium for Street Children was organized on the 7th July 2020: On the care implications of Covid-19 on street-connected children. Speakers from 3 NGOs presented on and discuss the care implications of COVID-19 and responses to the pandemic on street-connected children.
They presented on the situation and context for children in Mexico, India, and Tanzania, before a panel discussion that looked at issues such as family reunification, the role informal care has played, and how governments have been addressing street-connected children’s care needs.
