Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Wali asserted that the ministry suspended issuing licenses for establishing new orphanages five years ago. 

She made the remarks on Sunday at the first Arab States Conference on Aftercare of Orphaned Youth (Sanad Conference) which is organized by the Social Solidarity Ministry in tandem with the Wataneya Society for the Development of Orphanages.

Delegations from 17 Arab states attended the Arab League-sponsored event.

She added that the ministry backs sending orphans to foster families.

She urged Egyptian families to offer psychological and social support for orphans, not just financial support.
