On november 2009 Carla Bruni-Sarkozy together with the founder of Samusocial doctor Xavier Emmanuelli participated in one of the rounds of Samusocial de Paris in the streets of the French capital.

Unrecognized in her blue windcheater and cap, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy watches, listens and observes the work of the samusocial mobile team, their assistance to homeless in the streets of Paris.

“Some are gentle, some are sympathetic, some show a certain violence – but with all of them you sense that these are people whose lives have been profoundly damaged.

National Center for Missing Children to Open

The Moscow Times, 11 Jan 10, article

 A new national center will be set up to find missing children as Moscow brings its practices into line with UN norms.

According to the report released by Russia’s first children’s ombudsman Alexei Golovan and UNICEF in the 1990s, street children were readily seen near Moscow’s train stations. Now many of them are hiding in basements and attics, which makes it harder for the social services to find them.

Eleonore Senlis, the vice-president of samusocialMoskva, suggested that the number of homeless children has not changed, just their whereabouts have.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year 2010!
