Poland, the 9th largest country in Europe, is a beautiful country in Central Europe that is roughly the size of New Mexico. With 97% of the population declaring Polish as their primary language, Poland is one of the most linguistically homogenous countries in Europe. Poland is also known for a special affinity for English, with English noted as the most popular foreign language in the country.
A fascinating country rich in history and tragedy, Poland is estimated to have as many as 80,000 orphans within its borders. With 350 orphanages and 100 smaller family-run orphanages, Poland currently has the highest number of orphanages in Central Europe. Most of the children in their care have suffered emotional trauma, and the orphanages do not have the resources needed to meet the needs of these children. 25,000 of Poland’s orphans live in state-run orphanages. 90% are social orphans, generally meaning that they have been removed from their parental home because of neglect, abuse, poverty, or the parents have lost their parental rights.
Lifeline is a state-licensed, non-profit ministry that exists to both place these children in a safe and loving home and provide services to Christian families desiring to adopt. Lifeline began its adoption ministry to Poland with a vision to help find loving, Christian homes for these precious children who otherwise might never experience the love and care from having a family of their own.
