WHERE WE WORK: RUSSIA
Over a half million children live in institutionalized care in the Russian Federation. WACAP began working in Russia in 1993 and was the first agency authorized to place children from the Russian Far East with adoptive parents.
WACAP’s work in the Russian Federation includes:
rUSSIA MILK FUND
WACAP's Russia Milk Fund began in 1997 in response to the great nutritional needs of children in Russian orphanages. Since then, this fund has expanded so that it may meet other basic needs of Russian orphans such as clothing, diapers, school supplies, and training for caregivers - in addition to nutrition.
WACAP PROMISE FUND - FINDING FAMILIES FOR CHILDREN IN RUSSIA
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.
