Foster Friday

Foster Friday

As a community we must consider how we support orphan and refugee children when they are displaced and arrive in U.K

As most Muslim children spend time in non-Muslim homes the only solution for this is more Muslim foster carers and adopters.

The BBSI is supporting the Foster Friday and encourage imams and khateebs to deliver the proposed khutbah template linked below.
