The Minister for Social Security and Development Mashair Al-Dawalab has called yesterday upon all relevant Ministers
to play their part in the success of a campaign to eliminate homelessness and begging and to have a greater role with the ministry Interior assisted by some tough laws that regards beggary as illicit gain and most of the beggars are aliens and their presence in Sudan is illegal.
The Minister has stressed that people should differentiate between persons who are in dire needs and those who take beggary as a profession.
Begging is not acceptable anywhere and it is very sensitive issue. I believe strongly that ,such people families has to be traced so that something positive can be done about it specially the beggars who are physically challenged.
The National Council for Child Welfare (NCCW) and its partners are working to locate the homeless families and their States in order to send them to the Ministries of Welfare in the concerned States ,that means all states should coordinate and cooperate with the NCCW in order to make a success the unification project. Besides, the great role of the ministry of education and family counseling centers in preventing school dropout by providing them all means of security and stability and to prevent violence against them, so that they can dream of a happy world.
