SA Prefer to Foster Orphans: Study

Monday, July 9, 2012 - 16:42
A new study finds that adoptions are not a frequent choice among South African families

The South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) study has found that adoptions are not a frequent choice among families.

In a press statement, SAIRR, points out that, “A lot of orphans are looked after by their extended families or family friends in a private, informal arrangement known as kinship foster care."

The organisation further states that this type of arrangement is widely practised in South Africa, even though it is not ordered or regulated by any statute or legal body.
