Spanish Couple Not Allowed To Adopt Moroccan Orphans Over Fears of Conversion to Christianity
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
If Morocco authorises non-Muslim families to adopt Moroccan orphans, 30,000 children risk being evangelised in the next 20 years, according to the Justice Minister Mustapha Ramid.
The Kafala, the adoption regime in force in Morocco, allows non-Muslim families to adopt Moroccan children.
However, in practice, foreigners are not authorised to adopt Moroccan children, or at least do not have priority. Numerous adoption requests from foreigners are rejected by the Moroccan authorities.
