Since September 1998, the Community of Sant'Egidio has launched a long-distance adoption program in several countries around the world.


WHAT LONG-DISTANCE ADOPTION INVOLVES

Long-distance adoption involves support for several aspects of the child's life

- Health (medical care and purchase of medicines)
- Education (payment of school fees and materials)
- Utilities – water, energy, and other costs
- Birth registration

- Clothing, games and other necessities for the whole household

CHOOSE THE TYPE OF LONG-DISTANCE ADOPTION YOU WISH TO SUPPORT

Individual adoption:

Support one child who is part of a community (village, institute, town, school or nutritional center) where Sant’Egidio is presently active. The monthly fee is 26.00 Euro and will cover the health, education, and living expenses for that year. You will receive the story and the photo of the child you are supporting.

"Mother and child" adoption within the DREAM program:

HOW LONG DOES LONG-DISTANCE ADOPTION LAST
Long-distance adoption does not have a duration: it can last until the child has grown up and is able to support himself or herself. However, it is possible to terminate the adoption at any time, giving three months' notice so that the child can be placed in the care of another adoptive parent.

PAYMENT METHOD AND DEDUCTIBILITY
You can pay the distance adoption fees with the periodicity you have chosen, specifying the name of the adopted child or the facility in the reason for payment in the description of the bank transfer or credit card transaction. The monthly fees can also be paid in a single annual fee or in other solutions to be agreed upon.
Payment must be made exclusively to the account number dedicated to distance adoptions.
