Kyrgyz Charities

Hello,

Does anyone know of any Charities, aid offices etc who's attentions are directed towards Kyrgyzstan?

I have been unable to find anything on the net, but having been there a little while ago I know the Swiss have a big aid relationship with the country.

Having been to Kyrgyzstan a little while ago and been so warmly taken by so many people who had so little, I would like to get involved on this side.

Cheers,

tomek

Re: Kyrgyz Charities

The Red Cross has a presence...

I have connections via Australia, but it's with Christian organisations within Kyrgyzstan. The organisation that I worked for for one year had various grass-roots partner organisations led by local people, and we fundraised for them - street kids, orphans and shelters, drug and alcohol programmes. All the staff were local Kyrgz (not foreign missionaries)...

In 2009 the laws were changed and religious freedom is now very limited...

Re: Kyrgyz Charities

Hi dusio,

I know someone who works with the Business Professionals Network (http://www.bpn.ch/index.php?id=1&L=1). They do projects in Kyrgyzstan.

I hope this helps!

Best regards,
lbp_ch
