Welcoming Angels Winter Hosting Program
World has officially begun recruiting host families for our Winter 2012/2013
Welcoming Angels Hosting Program. Recruiting will continue through
October 15. We are looking for advocacy and adoption minded
families to host older orphaned children from Ethiopia for 4 weeks during
December 2012 and January 2013. At this time, interested families must be
willing to host children, mostly boys, ages 10-15 and sibling sets with boys
and girls between 10-15 years old.
information on the hosting program and answers to frequently asked questions, please read the Welcoming Angels FAQs.
cost to host a child is $1,800 plus the childâ€™s airfare. The cost
includes social work services, training, program fees, travel documents/visas
for the children, medical evaluations of the children prior to participation in
the program, etc. Airfare cost can range from $1,300 – $2,000. Group airfare will be purchased to keep costs as low as possible.
Fundraising is encouraged.
