Serving Kyrgyzstan Through Lifeline

International Adoption

About Kyrgyzstan

Lifeline has had an adoption program in Kyrgyzstan since May 2014 and has had a very strong and positive start in this adoption program. Kyrgyzstan allows families the opportunity to pursue adoption of children with significant medical and developmental special needs as well as children with more minor special needs. Lifeline’s Kyrgyzstan team has developed strong relationships with the Ministry of Social Development.

The Need

The main cause for children becoming orphans in Kyrgyzstan and being placed in an orphanage is poverty and general economic situation.

How You Can Help

Lifeline works diligently to prepare families for children with minor to significant medical and developmental special needs so that when they are offered a match, they will be ready for any challenges that might lie ahead.
