Legal Assistance

Twins birth certificateThe majority of the families we help have no ID or registration documents and therefore have no access to hospital, school, kindergarten, family GP etc. These families are eking out an existence, unrecognised by a society that totally rejects them. Project funding enables a qualified member of staff to research each case as it becomes available and then to attend meetings with the authorities and social services. It covers the provision of all the necessary paperwork, photocopies, the costs incurred in preparing for the Courts and all the associated travel.
