Appoġġ, a social service agnecy of the Foundation for Social Welfare Services in Malta, has launched a campaign encouraging people to take on the role of foster carer, in order to provide foster homes for the 250 children in out-of-home care who are not currently fostered. The campaign, called "Open your heart and your home – Choose fostering," was launched in response to the shrinking number of new foster carers each year, according to this article from the Times of Malta.
