No one wants his life ended on the streets or in the Trash Shelter (TPS). Neither with hundreds of street children in Surabaya.
These children do not choose to live on the street, but they chose to struggle with the rigors of the road in order to escape from the bondage of poverty. They, having the same ideals with other children on their age. Only the fate of distinguishing. And only the determination and tenacity that can turn them into successful human. Seeing the passion and perseverance to carve them in the future, GarudaFood and Save Street Child Surabaya, held an event, such as break fasting and distribute clothes for hundreds of street children, scavengers and children who live in Rangkah Surabaya Tomb (18 Agustus 2011) and TPS Genteng Kali, Surabaya (19 Agustus 2011).
At the same time, GarudaFood held a social activity with the children of Muara Angke fishermen, guided by Sister Henny – one of the National Commission for Child Protection
commissioners (KOMNAS Anak) (20 Agustus 2011). This activity is part of the Protection and Care Program for Indonesian Children (PELUK Anak Indonesia) synergies with National Commission for Child Protection and Lembaga Perlindungan & Pendidikan Anak (LPPA) Muara Angke.
