Today's episode features Dr. Delia Pop, Director of Programmes at Hope and Homes for Children (https://www.hopeandhomes.org/), and soon to be Director of Tanya's Dream Initiative Fund (https://www.swissphilanthropy.ch/en/2019/09/30/the-foundation-celebrates-the-opening-of-its-50th-fund-tanyas-dream-initiative-fund/). We explore how Covid-19 is affecting children living outside of family care around the world, in orphanages, institutions, and foster care arrangements. With tourism halted, funding for orphanages is drying up and children are being sent 'home'. Will we see an increase in the number of children requiring care? Will we see an explosion of people wanting to help these children once tourism resumes?
