The Department of Social Services recently launched a publicity campaign on behalf of the 19 young children that they are looking to place with foster families.
Yesterday they reported that their request had met with a huge response from families all around the TRNC.
Department head Aydan Baskurt said that she was very happy and proud of the response.
There are already 32 families that have foster children and the state provides for the extra financial costs of fostering.
Families that have responded are currently going through an interviewing process.
