An organisation like SACAS can only exist with
the support it receives from its membership and the wider community. Since
its formation in 2004 SACAS has received many kind words of support and
encouragement along with an occasional dose of constructive criticism.
This feedback is truly valued and keeps our volunteer based organisation
motivated, informed and moving forward. So if you have any comments about
SACAS and its services please email us at email@example.com
or speak to a Board Member. We'd
love to hear from you.
2008 SACAS was presented with the Children's Week Award for Outstanding and
Consistent Contributions to the Needs, Interests and Welfare of
Children. As the primary purpose of SACAS is the welfare of children
adopted from the People's Republic of China, we can think of no greater
honour than to be acknowledged in this manner.
have now had an opportunity to look at your web site, which I linked yesterday
to the AFIS web site. I must say it is excellent! It looks good and feels
very family friendly and child focused. It has excellent information that
is easily read and quickly absorbed - it doesn't feel as though you have to
plough through it to get to the info that you want. All the links and
sections seem to be exactly what people would be looking for. The SACAS
infrastructure stuff is interesting and well presented also. I am really
pleased to be able to link such a helpful site to ours. - Jeanie Lucas,

Activities and Events
really big thank you to SACAS for making us feel so welcome. ..... having a
support group like SACAS is so important whilst going through the process. This
is something we did not have with our (other) adoptions, and we hope that we
will be able to form friendships like those we saw this weekend with many of the
people we meet over the coming years.
Great to meet with other families who are
going through the same experiences as we are.
