Watch our range of films that will help show why some children are institutionalised, the impact to them and their parents through separation, the systems that need to change and what Lumos is doing to support families and reform care systems.


A home for a new life


A group of Lumos’ self-advocate children from Moldova, who had themselves experienced institutionalisation, answered these questions by creating this short film, ‘A home for a new life’. This powerful film tells about separation, solitude, hope, family reunification, love and new opportunities. The children’s message to the world is that each and every child needs a family to thrive and be happy.
