Tens of thousands of children are abandoned in China each year. In 1991, WACAP became the first agency to provide adoption opportunities to orphaned and abandoned children in the People’s Republic of China. Since then, WACAP has found homes for not only hundreds of baby girls, but also for many older kids and children with special needs in China.

In 1999, WACAP launched the six-year Peony Project with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Peony Project provided training to orphanage caretakers and delivered special education and physical rehabilitation to hundreds of orphans and other children with neurodevelopmental disabilities in Henan, one of China’s poorest provinces.

Today WACAP continues its work to find adoptive families for orphans of all ages from all parts of China.

WACAP’s work in China includes:

WACAP PROMISE FUND - finding families for children in china

Many children waiting to be adopted are older, have specific medical or developmental needs, or are siblings. Because of this, they have been left behind.  WACAP has made a promise to these special children - to do our best to find families for them. WACAP’s Promise Fund supports our ability to identify waiting children around the globe, create materials to promote their adoption, and provide grants to families when finances are a barrier to bringing them home. With your donation, you can help WACAP find families for these specially-identified children.
