Unfortunately, you are not eligible to adopt from OrphanCare. Our journey since 2010 has been wonderful, by saving babies and giving them a chance to live the life they deserve. We truly appreciate your intention to adopt.

However, we are an NGO that focuses on local adoption as international adoption requires a more stringent documentation and screening process. In the same time, the potential parent(s) has to adhere the adoption laws of both countries if they need to bring the child overseas. We follow the local welfare department law requirements for adopting in Malaysia.

The same laws apply to Malaysian applicants who live overseas.

Visit the JKM Department of Social Welfare for more information.

It’s amazing you’re looking to adopt an older or a special needs child. These children are often neglected in institutions until they are 18 years old, after which they have no choice but must leave them. You are doing something quite incredible.
