Free text By quoting a number of examples from different parts of the world, the author reviews and comments on the types and quality of residential care given to children in the developing world with their effect on the children it is supposed to help and the possibilities of reinforcing programmes that give priority to reintegration of children into their families. Fostering programmes are also reviewed with the conclusion that these will only be successful in a well-developed welfare system.
