In Canada, Adopt A Child is a registered charity under VICV. The office in Canada was birthed out of prayer in 2005. Garry and Melanie Lech first visited the International Ministry in Guatemala in 1999. They caught the vision when they saw first hand what was happening with these beautiful children and saw the transparency and accountability of the work. Canada's National office is located in Victoria BC where we can be reached via email or by phone.
