In the past there have been major problems with adoption in and from Colombia. Plan Angel addresses these issues by bringing family members together. Unfortunately, forced adoption still takes place in Colombia. For this reason, we put a lot of energy into preventing this by talking to families and starting international public debates about adoption. Plan Angel was one of the leaders in demanding the political investigation into fraudulent adoption cases. In 2019, the Dutch government set up the Joustra Committee to investigate this issue. Plan Angel is also lobbying within the Eurpean Union to fight for the rights of ALL adoptees.
