About the event

Family reunification is a challenging yet deeply impactful process – and applying best practices while

doing so is critical to supporting children who’ve been separated from their families. IBESR (Haitian

Social Services) has the vision of “Yon fanmi pou chak timoun” or “A family for every child” which

demonstrates how much of a priority it has become to ensure that children in Haiti are given the chance

to grow up in families. As awareness about the damages of family separation increases globally, more

and more organizations in Haiti and across the world are becoming involved in the reunification of

children with their families – especially those children who were previously living in orphanages. In

addition to children living in orphanages, family reunification may be necessary for children living in the

streets, children living as restavecs, children who are victims of trafficking, children who are

incarcerated, and children who are lost, abandoned or otherwise separated from their families.

Join us in our upcoming workshop for a panel discussion about Family Reunification! Learn more

about the methodology of family reunification and what best practices within that process look like;

discover what challenges come up when striving to reconnect separated children with their families –

and ways to overcome those challenges!
