Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan – Montana’s Sister Country
Kyrgyzstan once a part of the Soviet Union now Montana’s sister country and a place Farm in the Dell has called home since 2003. With the support of many local people and the Montana National guard a home was built for the developmentally disabled in this beautiful country. It has become a beacon for other countries in Asia showing that there is a place in communities around the world for developmentally disabled individuals to thrive and become valued members of their communities. Fundraising started in early 2000 and the MT national guard helped with flights, supplies and a whole lot of hard work to construct the home and bring doctors, nurses and many trades man to help train and assist the local community.
In 2003 A MT National Guard C130 flew over with final supplies for the house and workers and to complete the project and move in. Since then we have regular visits from Kygyz nationals who want to visit Montana to meet the people who helped them in their time of need.
When a community comes together to build a better world, we all win. And it can happen anywhere. Please help us build the next Farm in the Dell by donating today. God bless!
