Only Kyrgyzstan has social orphan notion

Only Kyrgyzstan has a social orphan notion, Vice Prime Minister Cholpon Sultanbekova said today at the meeting of SDPK parliamentary faction.

The meeting discusses the situation in the sphere of migration. Deputies raised the issue of abandoned children.

Today, foster homes around the republic are a home for about 8,800 children. However, only a small part is full or half-orphans, the rest are considered as social orphans.

«Even international donors say that there is no such notion as a «social orphan." We are optimizing foster homes. Every child should live in a family," the Deputy Prime Minister said.

Deputy Aida Kasymalieva proposed to conduct explanatory work among women who go to work outside the KR. «Many leave young, then become pregnant, have to perform abortions, abandon or even kill their children," she said.
