How You Can Help

In addition to adoption, humanitarian aid and social service programs have always been a focal point of our mission here at MAPS. We care deeply about the children who live in poverty or in orphanages, and we work hard to make life better for these children and families throughout the world. But we can't do it without support from our MAPS community - our adoptive families, our committed donors, and our partner organizations whose tax-deductible contributions help us make the world a safer and healthier place.
