Fostering and sponsoring children of unknown parentage

While adoption is not allowed, eligible Emiratis may embrace and raise a child of unknown parentage, subject to specific terms and conditions. The UAE provides monthly assistance to orphans. Both Emiratis and residents can sponsor the living costs of children under various child sponsoring programmes, led by humanitarian entities in the UAE.
