Since its establishment, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was committed to care for orphans and has offered an excellent example in this regard. Such care has been extended and established over time. The responsibility to monitor the orphans’ situation, explore their needs, and look after them was entrusted in order to ensure their dignity and self-reliance.
The General Administration for Orphans of the Undersecretary of the Ministry for Social Welfare and Family is responsible for and supervising all orphan and orphan care affairs. The administration strives to develop general policies for the care of orphaned children and those in a like situation, in addition to social groups with special circumstances such as children of unknown parentage. The Administration aims to provide care, education and reformation to these children in accordance with the tolerant principles of Islamic law, in modern scientific methods through shelter houses and institutions, or monitor their care with foster or caring families. The General Administration for Orphans provides its services through two specialized technical departments, the Department of Orphans' Affairs and the Department of Residential Care.
Foster Families and Caring Families Systems supervised by the Department:
1. Foster Families System:-
It is the full and permanent care by a family of one of the orphans under the supervision of the Ministry, in a manner that achieves psychological security and emotional satisfaction of the orphaned child, and helps him/her learn optimal social customs and values, where the orphan becomes a member of the family in accordance with the legitimate regulations governing this matter.
2. Caring Family System:
It is a program aimed at compensating orphaned children who have not had the opportunity to be fostered by a family by allowing families wishing to care for them to offer them partial care. So, under this system, one of the natural families in the community is associated with one or more orphaned children residing in one of the residential social shelters of the Agency for Welfare and Social Development to host him/her during a specific period such as the period of holidays (eids, weekends or summer vacations) and then the child is returned to the house or institution in which he resides, after the end of the holiday or the specified period.
One of the most important objectives of the Department of Orphan Guardianship is to receive applications from families wishing to foster these children and wishing to be rewarded by Allah, who have the ability and competence to care for orphaned children and compensate them for the loss of their parents. The opportunity is available to good families who wish to care for orphans. Foster and caring families are selected according to special social criteria. They have to have the proper social climate and the desired elements of socialization and express their desire to take care of these children within the household. Accordingly, these families are entrusted with the care and upbringing of orphans and those in a like situation. These children are subject to continuous supervision and follow-up by the branches of the Ministry. A financial subsidy is paid for each child in consideration for the care offered to him/her of up to (2000) riyals per month for the family that fosters a child under the age of six, and an amount of (3000) riyals per month for the family that fosters a child over six years of age (on demand of fostering families). At the end of the fostering period, the fostering family is paid a reward of (20.000) riyals for each child whose fostering period has expired.
