Serving Hong Kong Through Lifeline

Hong Kong is a Special Administrative State of the Republic of China. Hong Kong was a British colony for many years before returning to Chinese rule in 1997. Approximately 7 million people inhabit the densely populated region. Hong Kong is known to be a melting pot of numerous cultures including: Chinese, British, Vietnamese, Americans and various other ethnic groups. Due to its long-term association with Great Britain, Hong Kong is very westernized and enjoys a high level of autonomy and maintains a separate political and judicial system from that of China.

International Adoption

About Hong Kong

Lifeline has had the privilege of working in Hong Kong SAR for the last 11 years. Children in Hong Kong are under the care of the Social Welfare Department and Mother’s Choice advocates for these children. We partner with Mother’s Choice, and have a wonderful relationship with the team there! We have seen amazing growth in this program over the last few years and are so thankful for Mother’s Choice’s continued advocacy for more children to join families.

The Need

Hong Kong has a very active domestic adoption culture. However, finding forever families within Hong Kong for children with moderate or severe special needs or older children has been a challenge.

How You Can Help

Lifeline has the distinct privilege to advocate for international adoption exclusively for children who are older or have moderate or severe special needs.
