We are not currently accepting new families into the Pakistan orphanage program due to the increasingly long wait time to receive a placement by licensed Pakistani orphanages.
We will continue to assist US citizens taking guardianship of approvable relative cases.
New Star Kafala’s goal is to operate in the most cost-effective manner possible while maintaining high standards. By working with knowledgeable, ethical and deeply committed partners abroad, we are able to offer professional services in the true spirit of non-profit operation. There are no hidden additional costs in our fees or estimates.
