President Ilir Meta urges to the Albanian politics and civic society to support orphans. Speaking in a ceremony organized on Wednesday on occasion of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the first orphanage in Albania he defined the orphans as the society's most fragile strata while asking for a major support by the state's institutions.
"Joint efforts are needed by the state's institutions and civic society for orphans' integration. They should grow up as healthy and well-educated individuals feeling the state's hand in the shoulder. All necessary steps should be taken by the law' enforcement bodies in order to prevent their exploitation and gradual involvement in the organized crime world," said Meta.
