95 percent of children living in orphanages in Kyrgyzstan have parents. The Minister of Labor and Social Development Taalaykul Isakunova informed today at a meeting of the Parliament.

According to her, 12,000-14,000 soms are spent on each child per year, but 75% of this amount is taken by the administration of an orphanage, so the government intends to open deposit accounts for the orphans.

The number of such children increases by 400 people annually, the Ministry of Social Development said.

There are 6,000 children with disabilities in the country.
