Fostering is a journey for the foster children and parents. This means that fostering a child does not stop in signing the contract and fending for him/her right after. A foster parent must be able to provide the child’s physical, emotional and psychological needs all while adjusting to his/her new role. We help foster parents through the following services:
Platform for foster parents to network and share experiences with other foster parents facilitated by social work professionals.
Platform for foster children to share their experiences with other foster children and also for professionals to impart skills to help them cope/ manage their emotions.
This Webinar was held on 18 July 2020 and featured speakers from PERGAS and Office of the Mufti. This webinar comprised of participants who were foster parents, interested applicants and other industry professionals. This webinar was well-received as it touched on fostering and what Islam says about fostering.

PPIS Oasis is a fostering initiative that supports foster parents in their efforts to provide a safe and stable home environment for foster children through our therapeutic and support services. The centre facilitates the fostering journey by helping foster families develop a healing and healthy relationship with foster children – all while allowing these children to realise their potential and aspirations.
Hear about a pair of PPIS Oasis foster parents share a little bit about their own fostering journey in Singapore.
“Being a volunteer with PPIS Oasis has been an extremely eye-opening experience. From accompanying the children to celebrating their achievements, I have learnt so much about the meaning of resilience. By seeing the passion and perseverance of the parents, children and the other volunteers, I understand what it takes to be a better version of myself.”
Salimah Alias, Volunteer
“To be able to care, to be able to laugh with and to be able to impact young minds is a wonderful opportunity given by PPIS Oasis. One learns how important it is to constantly nurture the relationship between a child and a parent. And you also get to rub shoulders with this vibrant and eccentric generation of the future.”
Esha Ashar, Volunteer
“This little being looks up to you and knows you as the person that will keep them safe and that reason alone is enough to make us continue with this journey. Sometimes we struggle, and most days we pray to God to help us as we make this journey with any child God sends to us, as they are our Amanah from the moment they stepped in through our door.”
Mdm Faridah Ali, Foster Mother
“We are still learning along the way… our kids have taught us many things.. things that are mostly taken for granted as adults… they taught us to slow down, be happy on any occasion, laugh at the silliest mistakes, be merry, be silly and many more… we are ever so thankful for their presence in our lives…”
