Orphans Aid International is not an adoption agency. Whilst our partner foundation in Romania organises adoption for Romanian children it is only to Romanian residents.
ICANZ Intercountry Adoption New Zealand specialises in this area. ICANZ is approved by the New Zealand government and can help you with your query.
Orphans Aid does have a volunteer who has adopted intercountry and who is happy to help with adoption questions. If you would like to speak in confidence with her please contact our office.
Adoption is a wonderful gift to a child and a family and we would encourage you to look at this option if you are in a position to do so. What an amazing way to show love to an orphaned child!
Our projects rely heavily on our supporters making a commitment to a regular sponsorship. To get started, please complete a Sponsorship Form or visit our Project Pages for detailed information about each project. All sponsors will receive a donation receipt. Donations given within New Zealand may be Tax Deductible for amounts of $5 and over. 100% of sponsorships funds are sent to be used at the chosen project you designate.
" As someone who has worked in philanthropy since 1993, I think I can confidently say that I would judge Orphan's Aid as one of the most worthy organisations which has now gained a reputation for the delivery of aid overseas. The organisation has a very clear mission, and objectives and has proved itself capable of maintaining income to sustain a regular contribution to various partner organisations overseas. I know you have a clear process and system for evaluating the capability of your overseas partners."
