Dec 29, 2010 3:23:56 AM - itnnews.lk

Chairperson of the National Child Protection Authority Anoma Dissanayake says a foster parent scheme will be introduced to provide love and protection for children who had lost their parents due to war.

Mrs. Dissanayake noted that according to the Government Agent of Mullaitivu, there are around 405 children who had lost one of their parents. 195 of them had lost both parents. However, she said that these children were living under difficult conditions and invited people to lend their support to the National Child Protection Authority to take care of the children.
