Lack of coordination halts adoption of orphans in Gujarat 

The Gujarat riots have left hundreds of orphans in the state. These children are staying either with their relatives or in camps. Many people want to adopt them, but lack of coordination between the people desirous of adoption and the current guardians of these children have made adoption difficult.

Yayha Sheikh of Ahmedabad, Ismail Ghori of Junagadh, Zahida and Munirali Soonawala of Mumbai are desperate to adopt children. The Soonawalas had written twice to Gujarat Sarvajanik Relief Committee (GSRC) requesting adoption. Several camp organisers have received such requests.

Yahya Sheikh has no child. He does not know whether the state government has any adoption programme for the orphans nor whom to approach. The GSRC had advertised in the newspapers asking people to provide details of orphans so that something could be done for them. "Neither the camp organisers nor the relatives ( of orphans) replied, but those who want to adopt children sent in applications", says GSRC president Afzal Memon. Afzal said further that it had always been difficult to convince relatives and parents for adoption.

Many non-governmental organsations (NGOs) are dealing with relief and rehabilitation, but only a few NGOs are working for orphans exclusively. Most of the orphans and single parent children are living either with their relatives or in camps. Due to lack of a proper system people interested in adopting children are facing difficulties.
