Kyrgyzstanis adopt over 3,000 children for 3 years

Since 2014 till 2016, Kyrgyz citizens had adopted 3,072 children, and foreign citizens — 66 children. The Head of the department for the protection of the family and children of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development Janyl Dzhumabaeva said today at a press conference.

According to her, the republic is doing everything possible in order children to live in their biological families. «If the family was not saved, the child is taken under guardianship or given up for adoption to the citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic, and only as a last resort — for international adoption. Up to date, 12 foreign organizations that are involved in international adoption have been accredited in Kyrgyzstan, including 7 from the United States, one from Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland and Germany," Janyl Dzhumabaeva told.

According to her, a child is placed in the children’s institutions when there is no other way. Even if the mother renounced the child, the department’s employees should make every effort to reunite the kid with the family.
