We are in the process of trying to adopt this sweet girl, Rahama, from South Sudan. She was orphaned by the war as her entire family was killed in a raid on her village. She was left for dead, wrapped to her mama and found a short time later. She was taken to the hospital and cared for by fantastic doctors and now resides at our (His Voice Global’s ) EPC Yei orphanage. She is significantly younger than all the children at the orphanage and because of the war there are no local families available to care for her.
Being a new country, South Sudan has no set adoption laws. Yet, because of our long term involvement we are getting an “Official Presidential Decree” which will allow us to adopt! As many of you know, the organization we founded (His Voice Global ) has been working in southern Sudan (now South Sudan) for 15 years. Through this we have developed relationships with the government as well as the local leaders. His Voice Global is currently helping negotiate peace as South Sudan is in Civil war.
We have found an amazing stateside agency willing to take our case and help us bring her home!
Thank you for considering giving or sharing about our adoption! Any amount would help as we can not “officially” start the US paperwork until we have a large sum of the total amount! The $25,000 will cover the adoption costs in both the US and South Sudan, along with the travel costs to get her and bring Rahama home.
