New initiatives to help children and young people on the street in Pointe-Noire

To cope with the social imbalance generated by the COVID-19 crisis and better meet the basic needs of children and young people in living on the street, the Samu social Pointe-Noire has adopted a host of new initiatives. These include: Increasing the reception capacity of the emergency accommodation centre of the Samu social from 24 to 32 children and the resumption of daytime patrols for the distribution of meals or sandwiches, care and social programmes and COVID-19 education to nearly 250 children left on the street.

While thanking the various partners (companies and individuals) who made it possible to carry out these activities, the Samu social Pointe-Noire still requests the generosity of the community, especially in the distribution of meals or sandwiches to children. Given their lifestyles and their inaccessibility to social programs developed by the state, street children and young people find themselves increasingly weakened by the imbalance created by COVID-19 and its measures.
