Family reunification

Every year around Christmas time, all children are brought home to their family. Some of them have not been in contact with their family in years because they lived on the streets. In one week time the employees of the Watoto Foundation cross Tanzania to bring the children home. Reunification is an important target for the Watoto Foundation.
