Ethiopia Update from US Embassy Addis Ababa

PEAR has confirmed that the following email was sent this week by the US Consular Section in Addis Ababa to all US adoption agencies for which the Embassy has contact information:

Dear All:

We contacted the Ethiopian Federal First Instance Court today. Court
President Ato Dessalegn told us that the investigation into cases of
abandoned children is still pending. But, the Court has begun
accepting cases of abandoned children referred from Addis Ababa
government orphanages. These include the following orphanages:
* Kebebe Tsehay Orphanage
* Ketchene Orphanage
* Kolfe Youth Center

I hope this information is helpful.

Paul Cantrell
Consular Section Chief
U.S. Embassy, Addis Ababa

Updates will be published on the DOS website and by PEAR as we receive them.
