This looks different in each of the 13 countries where (un)adopted is working, but a few things remain priority — making the name of Jesus known and empowering the local church to care for the more than 153 million children that are fatherless. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the R(un) for One go to (un)adopted work in Colombia, Peru, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Costa Rica, China, Haiti, Togo, Liberia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Ukraine and Pakistan.
