Adoption: A $100 Million Industry in Ethiopia - Report
Last September Australia's Foreign Correspondent program aired a disturbing video which exposed a booming international adoption trade out of control in Ethiopia. In the wake of the investigative work by Australia's ABC, the Australian government has suspended all international adoptions from Ethiopia. The Australian Attorney General plans to send a delegation to Ethiopia in early 2010 to hold discussions with representatives from the Ethiopian Government as well as our representatives in Ethiopia, it said on its website.
Ethiopia has become a fertile ground for international adoptions. It’s estimated thirty children leave the country a week. Across the city, hotel foyers have become clearing houses, departure lounges for many families and their adopted children. This is the scene in just one hotel in Addis Ababa. And the website You Tube is plastered with new parents’ home movies.
The crude reality is that children have become a big Ethiopian export. A child welfare agency here estimates international adoptions are generating revenue for the government of around one hundred million dollars a year, and the government is showing now sign that it is going to jeopardise that income for the sake of the children.
Ethiopia is not a signatory to the Hague Convention which requires international adoption be used only as a last resort. So as a result, a completely unregulated industry has grown up. More than 70 agencies operate here, almost half are unregistered. Corruption, fraud and deception are rife. The unscrupulous practices of this industry alarm one of the country’s top human rights lawyers, Mehari Maru.

Yes , what was i told you folk! Weyannes are selling ethiopians kids with hard currency that is the only thing weyannes understand.
Women trafficing is run by weyannes top Wives and now they are Selling ORGANS to Arabs …..things that You Kuttarams do not know.
This is so sad, the goverment selling Ethiopian children to generate money. This never happened before.
We have to do something, we just talk and complain. Maybe we can start with petition to the GOE and adoption agencies in Ethiopia.
Poverty …. Poverty …..poverty
Who do we have to blame for ? I think nobody !
Jesus has said leave the kids for me , I will take care of them .
Now poverty has taking it’s toll on the war torned country called Ethiopia . Oh my God take-care of your kids ! That is all I can say , I am so greedy I can not help . If god tells me to pay $30 a month to feed the children of Ethiopia , I will refuse,even if others want to help .
I thought it was just on sale of land, coffee,tchat, etc that woyane is amassing profit. It is most disheartening that these gangsterns are selling our young folks!

Shame on the Ethiopian government when outsiders get conserned while the government is watching silentely children being exported like commodities…
ADAPTION IN ETHIOPIA IS BECOMING FIRST CHOICE NOT LAST RESORT.
SHAME ON THE ETHIOPIAN GOVERNMENT.
The minority regime of secession continues to violate Ethiopia’s sovereignty by selling off fertile Ethiopia and Ethiopian children.

We have chosen education as Our primary concern because we believe that it is the instrument by which Our aims could be brought to fruition."HIM

Weyane will sell anything including our children. This is what they have done since 1991. Sold Assab, Eritrea itself, part of Humera, Taytu Hotel, thousands of factories, millions of acres of land, and now poor orphans!
Even Italian Fascists did not sell babies! Shame on these traitors!!

It took two decades for Ferejis to learn the real story about “adoption” from Ethiopia?.

That answers my question as to why I saw all those adopred Ethiopian children on the plane that I boarder from Ethiopia to Washinon DC.
I knew it involves the goverment and mony. Meles sales his own mother as long as he gets the BIG $$$s
This is heartbreaking..I really don’t have any words to describe my feelings but i can only say Shame on those agencies and the current government for not taking the appropriate measures to curb the illegal trading of Ethiopian children.
What is wrong with giving a child an option to live? Woregna abesha, menged lay tetilew andit kurash dabo latakaflu, just b/c the governmet makes money out of giving these kids an option,,,afachuhun atikfetu.
Be reasonable. Why shouldn’t a hungry street kid be adopted? And unfortunately, we have hundreds of kids who really need this oportunity!
Meles would allow the sell of his own children. The man is ruthless. Watch out people, you better watch your language. This man the more you attach him he will disgrace even himself for the sake of revenge. Dont compete with a mad man when you are a bunch of nothing who can inflict nothing. You better be smart and remove this cancer systematically. Defaming him or attacking him verbally will get you ten folds revenge from the mad man. If you are mad and man enough do something about it. Stop talking cheap. Otherwise, you are worst that Meles himself. You have got the faggot shiek in Sheraton who is also arranging all kinds of selling for Meles so we got a handful. We better watch it and be smart about it than holding the tail of a tiger only to be devoured by it.
If you have ever wondered why the government has been at the very center of the human trafficking, this is your answer. It is quite understandable if citizens fled their country in places like lawless Somalia, but in Ethiopia where there is a relative peace and better condition to work and raise a family, mass exodus of all sorts including child exportation and exploitation can keep growing only if there is the full support of the regime on power. Trounced and bloodied by its own failed sociopolitical and economical policies, the regime has no option except to fully cooperate and involve in the mafia business of selling its own citizens instead of protecting. It is as if the country is invaded by nineteenth century european colonialists and slave traders where selling the weak and the unprotected such as children is encouraged by the rulers. There is no reason other than self interest for the politicians who have chosen either to turn a blind eye or directly involve in the human trafficking business that is flourishing at the heart of the country, Addis Ababa. Protecting ones own citizens never was expected from an unelected, illegitimate therefore dictatorial rulers.
Take a look at the following link that was provided by Shewarega in the other thread which shows how the dictators’ children are living it while the vast majority of Ethiopians are struggling to survive and out-rightly getting sold for foreigners.
NO LOVE, NO SOUL!
The only thing Wayane know is Crulity!Unhuman Nature of Wayaene is endless.
