Care for Unaccompanied Children in Exile
The war in Bosnia-Herzegovina resulted in many unaccompanied
children as refugees in Zagreb. The Unaccompanied Children
in Exile project has organized two foster family care programs
to respond to the needs of some of these children. One places
the children in foster homes, including kinship homes. Center
parents can be located and the children safely registrated
for reconstruction with these families. The second serves
children who have been evacuated to Zagrab for whom treatment
of serious illnesses or injuries. Often treatment is needed
on an outpatient basis after hospitalization. Foster families
are recruited to care for these children during the time of
their medical treatment.
