More Children in Welfare Centers

More Children in Welfare Centers

Currently, 24,000 children with irresponsible parents or parents whose whereabouts are not known, are living in 570 welfare centers across the country, said Hossein Nahvinejad, deputy head of rehabilitation at the State Welfare Organization (SWO) on Tuesday. The figure was reported as 22,000 in July 2015, which indicates that the number of children at welfare centers has increased by 9% over the past two years, IRNA reported. A report released by the SWO says 87% of kids at the centers have negligent parents. In other words, 13% of the children are either abandoned or their parents are not living.
