Long Distance adoption !

With a limited financial contribution, distant adoption means giving a child or youth in particularly difficult conditions the possibility of growing up in his own country, respecting his culture and human dignity. It means food, medicines, schooling, a family, the love from far away persons who are concerned with his growth and to participate to his life, exchanging letters, drawings and experiences.

Distant adoptions are organized locally directly by our volunteers or cooperating with reliable local associations. ...
