Children of All Nations Opens Burundi Intercountry Adoption Program
There are over 500,000 orphans in Burundi in need of loving families. Children of All Nations is proud to be one of the few U.S. agencies working hand-in-hand with Burundi’s adoption authority to help improve the lives of these children.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Press Release) – Nov. 15, 2013 – Children of All Nations (CAN), a division of Great Wall China Adoption, is pleased to announce today the opening of our newest intercountry adoption program in Burundi, East Africa. This program continues the mission of Children of All Nations of finding forever families for orphans around the globe.
With over half of children under the age of five suffering from chronic malnutrition in Burundi, CAN is happy to begin recruiting families who will adopt these children to be their own while providing exceptional service to the families who hope to find their child in this beautiful, ecologically rich country.
The second intercountry adoption program opened this year and sixteenth program overall, CAN is excited to begin working with families to adopt from Burundi. The Ministry of Solidarity, in charge of the adoption process in Burundi, just recently restructured its international adoption team and processes in order to better serve the children.
There are over 500,000 orphaned and abandoned children in Burundi, and at least 4,500 of them are in orphanages around the country. These orphanages are centralized in Bujumbura and hold anywhere from 20 to 100 children. While some of these orphanages may have nicer facilities than others, the children almost always share beds, clothes, shoes, and other basic necessities.
Malnutrition can be a major issue for the orphans of Burundi who are limited to a diet primarily of rice and beans. By raising money to fund our Goats and Gardens project for Burundian orphans in 4 orphanages around the country, CAN hopes to make an impact on the plight of orphans in Burundi.

Great Wall & Children of All Nations is a Hague-accredited adoption agency, uniting children with forever families since 1996 and bettering life for children left behind in orphanages. Children of All Nations continues to develop new intercountry adoption programs in hopes that every orphan will find a permanent, loving family and educate families in preparation for adoption.
Children of All Nations (CAN), operated by Great Wall China Adoption, is a division of America’s leading international adoption agency. CAN is dedicated to improving the lives of children, and we are reaching out to the nations around the world to place children and give humanitarian aid on a global scale with adoption programs in countries around the globe.
