Today is World Adoption Day and Child Welfare Durban and District is calling on South Africans to join the global community in celebrating the beauty of adoption by posting pictures of themselves with smileys on their hands with the hashtag World Adoption Day.
World Adoption Day is a day to raise funds to support families in their adoption. Ambassadors from all over the world are organizing events and parties, bringing together people from all walks of life to celebrate World Adoption Day. Join us as we create a day to celebrate the power and beauty of family brought together through adoption.
