UN Resolution Will Focus on Children Without Parental Care

"In a historic move, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly selected ‘Children without parental care’ as the theme for the ‘Rights of the Child’ resolution for 2019," says this news release from SOS Children's Villages. "The resolution will give guidance for all organizations and stakeholders involved in child care and protection to unite and work around these priorities, helping to ensure that every child can grow up in a caring family – because no child should grow up alone. When the UN ‘Rights of the Child’ resolution is adopted in 2019, the non-binding resolution could become the most internationally recognized guidance for states and concerned stakeholders on protecting the rights of children without parental care or at risk of losing it."
