Foster Kids in North Carolina: Who are they? How many are there?
AssalamuAlaikum, my name is Towfiq Aziz. Today I'm going to talk about foster kids in NC, who are they, and how many there are. So first of all, who are foster kids? They are kids between the age of 2 months old babies to 21 year old grown adults. They are kids who have been abused, neglected, medically neglected, incarcerated, abandoned, truancy, whose parents have died, voluntarily placed, juvenile offender, or are runaways. How many are there though in North Carolina? There are over 11,000 foster kids just in NC. In Wake County there are almost 700 foster kids, for absolute numbers, it is 687 foster kids. What are ways to help? Well, there are lots of ways, but the main way is by making Dua. Alhamdulillah, we have been blessed with great living circumstances with our family. There are also other ways like adopting a foster kid or donating money to them. InshaAllah, this has inspired all of us to at least make Dua. Don't forget to share this and spread the word, AssalamuAlaikum.
