One hundred and thirty babies have not found a home in a family environment this year, according to the Wallonia-Brussels Federation
“These 130 babies under the age of one are placed in nurseries awaiting foster care or tossed from one emergency department to another. In some cases, it happens that they spend several months in the hospital without medical reason or worse, that they return to their family home in which they are in danger because no other solution can be offered to them.“, explains Host Family in a press release.
To his eyes, “the rights of these children are not respected.“The association recalls that the international convention on the rights of the child requires, when a child must be removed from his family environment, that he can grow up in a family.
“Today we have no solutions for these children. The association is therefore looking for new long-term foster families for these toddlers. Questioned by the carte blanche of the youth magistrates in October, the Minister of Youth Aid Valérie Glatigny had met them. “Measures must be taken and will be taken, particularly in terms of objectification of these needs“, she said then.
