Too many immigrant children who are placed out their home end up by a Danish family. That isn't good enough, according to criticism from the Børns Vilkår (Children's Welfare) organization.
Immigrant children who are removed from their biological parents, must often say goodbye to their language, religion and traditions. The municipalities have trouble finding foster families of a non-Danish ethnic background.
In Copenhagen the problem was noticed and ads were placed in the Turkish and Arabic media, to get immigrant families with resources involved.
In 2006 the aim was to get 5% foster families of minority background, but at the beginning of 2007 there were less than 2% such families. Dorthe Lysgaard of Børns Vilkår says that's not good enough.
