CAW follows all the actualities happening in Chile today. We listen close to the investigation teams and the investigation commission to see how we can help. We have the contacts with the adoptees and we speak many different languages between each other. Our input has become of importance.

But we are also young as an organization and so we have to stay on top of the work we do; maintain neutral in order to be constructive on many different levels. 

As a platform we speak with adoptees all over the world. Also within the borders of our birth-country. So far we have not seen any adoption which has been dealt with regularly but that does not mean that a regular adoption would not have taken place.

Not only do we help to bring awareness to the adoptees, also to the birth-mothers and birth-families in Chile who are helping out to explain that what has happened in the past, they are not alone in their situation. Which up til today is sometimes still a thought that many families share. They are still looking for their children and have not been able to find them.

Where would a vulnerable family start with their search…

Working together with the investigation-teams we made a decision to implement a secured space on this website where adoptees can upload their adoption documents so that they will be included into the official investigation. By providing this option, more data can be looked into, information can be crossed and more “dots” can be connected towards the identification of those involved. For the investigation teams this is important to determine and find out how the Child Trafficking actually got to be so strong and it will hopefully help to send out a sound into the world that these violations against our Human Rights can never happen again!

Helping adoptees to be re-connected with their birth-families is a crucial part of our work. We are building a strong network in Chile in order to be of more help on more levels.

We cannot change our histories but we can make a difference for the future!
