Respect the right of orphans to housing


Respect the right of orphans to housing

Amnesty International calls upon Albania's central and municipal authorities to implement the right of adult orphans to priority with housing. Experience has shown that orphans, lacking family support, as adults risk poverty, social exclusion and in the case of young women in particular, sexual exploitation. Few adult orphans earn enough to buy or rent accommodation on the open market. They risk living on the margins of society unless active measures are taken by the authorities to integrate them into society. One such measure is to provide them with adequate housing..
