Joint Council Orphan and Family Database for Nepal
Joint Council’s Orphan and Family Database for Nepal is currently open to those families who have received the referral of Nepalese child. All U.S. citizens who has been referred a child from Nepal are encouraged to advocate for the completion of an ethical and legal adoption via their participation in this initiative. Families can participate by entering their adoption information into the database and staying informed by the Joint Council newsletter, blog and Facebook. The database will allow Joint Council to advocate with the U.S. and Nepalese governments, as appropriate, for the adoptions currently in process.
Participation by all families with referrals is needed and appreciated. Our goal with this initiative, as will all of our efforts, is to help to bring the children of Nepal closer to a safe, permanent and loving family through a legal, ethical and timely process. Joint Council has created similar databases during recent crises in Nepal, Guatemala, Haiti, and Kyrgyzstan. Having the information of children and families involved is critically important to the efficacy of our advocacy efforts.
