The closing of Vietnam to adoption does not mean that CAS has forgotten the children left in orphanages. The children and orphanages continue to have needs and the Vietnamese government only provides $20 per child per month in support. The average need per child is almost $200, which covers cost of all food, clothing, diapers, formula, medical care, electricity, transportation to medical appointments, a portion of caretaker salaries, and uniforms. Carolina Adoption Services continues to support three orphanages in Vietnam and has promised $150 per child per month for their care and needs. Please join us in supporting the children left behind by donating to CAS. If you have any questions about the need or number of children please contact Susan Fox or a Vietnam program team member for more information.
