Jos haluatte auttaa Adoption hinta dokumentissa nähtyä Masho tyttöä,lukekaa ja lahjoittakaa!!
After watching Mercy Mercy (Adoption hinta) , we at Against Child Trafficking felt something needed to be done to re-connect Masho with her parents. We felt something had to be done to oppose the condoning of a crime. We had worked in Ethiopia on adoption cases before, and had the necessary trustworthy contacts as well as the knowledge.
So we started Operation Masho.
We quickly raised some funds through our social network and traveled to Ethiopia to meet Masho’s parents. At the same time we took up another similar case that had been in the Danish media (the case of Amy) and met Amy´s mother in Ethiopia too.
While in Ethiopia, we discovered many more mothers whose children are now in Denmark, and these mothers had not, and still do not, understood adoption and miss their children.
Thus, we broadened the project into “Operation Mercy Mercy”, intending to help more Ethiopian mothers/parents. But first priority remain Masho and Amy’s reconnection.
Masho’s parents and Amy’s mother appointed Arun Dohle of Against Child Trafficking as their legal representative in Denmark.
In Ethiopia we hired a lawyer for the parents, who started the process of reversing the adoption. We supported another Ethiopian family before in doing this See this ACT case: Betty (Netherlands).
We have been several times in Denmark, where we met with politicians and the commune under whose care Masho is.
In the meantime, we started the process of applying for passports for Amy’s mother and Masho’s parents. Since Masho is in state care- to arrange a meeting very much depends on the commune. It looks like eventually Masho’s parents will be able to meet her in Denmark, but it is still a long road.
In Amy´s case, we have applied for a Visa for her mother. The plan was that she would travel to Denmark on 10 October 2013. However the day before, 9 October, we were informed it might take another 40 days to issue the Visa.
We think we’ll get there, but it is an uphill battle/ For for which we desperately need your financial support.
