How to help with street children.

Should a child be residing on the street and wants help to leave the street you can assist them by taking them to the closest police station and making an affidavit stating the situation and circumstances of the child. Should it be within working hours you can then take the child accompanied with the affidavit to the child protection organization working in the area that the child was found. The child protection organization will then be able to place the child in safe care or assist with returning them home. Should it be out of working hours, the police on duty at the local station will be able to phone the ‘after hours service’ and they will send a social worker to remove the child and place them in temporary safe care. Should a family be residing on the street with their children, making an affidavit and assisting them the Child protection organization working in their area would be the best option. A social worker will then conduct an investigation and depending on the outcome assist the parents into moving off of the street or remove the child to place in temp. safe care while working with the parents.
