Cecilia, Moises and Per

Making contact with birth-families is never easy. Sometimes links are very much broken and there is no easy way to reach them. Not by communication and less so when trying to locate them. Recently CAW got to be involved in reconnecting three siblings who were trying to connect with their mother and brother. Thanks to the Mapuche community, we have been able to reestablish communication and dealt with the translation-part. Hopefully, this is a new start to explore new horizons together. The CAW-Team will maintain to be dedicated to help this family reunite in any way that might be required....

Radio Media Naranja invites Peter Osendarp (CAW)

FROM THE DESK OF PETER OSENDARP INTERVIEW OF JOSÉ ZEPEDA WITH PETER OSENDARP Wednesday, August the 14, I had - in Spanish - an interview with the journalist José Zepeda from the radio and t.v. Producciones Media Narranja. The interview was held in Hilversum. It was about my story as an adoptive father of a Chilean child, adopted in 1977.

The Three Stolen Children

  • 19/12/2018

I have had a fantastic upbringing here in Sweden with my adoptive parents. It was in 2001 that I decided to look for my mother in Chile. I came into contact with a woman here in Varberg, who in return knew an older woman named Olivia who lived in Temuco. They found that this woman called Olivia that had lived in Sweden before, but that she moved back to Temuco. We got in contact with her and she promised me to help to look for my mother in Temuco. One night Olivia called me to tell me  she'd probably found my mother, that she worked as a cleaner at a school in Cuncon. To be sure,...

A photo impression of "Casa Nacional del Niño" located in Providencia, Santiago With Maria currently in Chile we are able to raise even more awareness in the weeks to come. However, it is not the only thing we do.  We were asked by Cecilia Liljedahl from Sweden if we would have the time to go to the orphanage where she was living with her two younger brothers. As we were in Santiago, we took the metro and went to station Manuel Montt in Providencia.  Below is the photo impression of "Casa Nacional del Niño". Today it is a hospital for children but once it was an orphanage directed...
