International Child Welfare
Throughout the world, children without parental care need a safe and caring family-like environment, in addition to materially sufficient orphanages. Through over a decade of work in Russia, Central America, and most recently China, OCD has found that it is possible to provide family-like care and environments within the walls of orphanages. We have been engaged in various efforts, with partners like UNICEF, USAID, and other NGOs, to both understand the needs and challenges of children without parental care around the world and to promote and evaluate efforts to seek alternatives to traditional orphanage care.
