Vietnam exerts efforts to ensure best care for children orphaned by Covid-19

The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) has asked localities nationwide to quickly design solutions to care for children orphaned by Covid-19.

In a document sent to centrally-run cities and provinces recently, the ministry stressed that the complicated developments of Covid-19, especially the fourth wave of outbreaks, in many localities, have made over 1,000 children orphans.

The MOLISA, along with the National Committee for Children, required the People’s Committees of provinces and cities to give alternative care for those children in line with the Law on Children and other regulations, prioritising the family-based alternative care to ensure their highest interest. Nursing facilities will be considered the last choice.

Alongside, localities, especially those with large numbers of children orphaned by Covid-19, were also requested to issue their own policies and plans to give immediate and long-term support and care for the children, while giving them legal assistance to ensure their rights and interest and protect them from being abused.

The move aimed to make sure that all children orphaned by Covid-19 will receive all necessary support to overcome this tough and challenging time, and receive care and love.
