Haiti Volunteer Outreach | Children and Orphans in Haiti

Haiti | National FlagIn early 2010, a devastating earthquake in Haiti left 250,000 people dead, thousands of children orphaned and countless wounded. Those  lucky enough to survive this devastating natural disaster were met with the reality that life in their country would never be the same. Masses of children were left displaced, separated from their families.

The sheer magnitude of destruction that has devastated the landscape and infrastructure of Haiti means that many families are unable to reunite and many children are still desperately searching for their loved ones. So many children have no way of knowing if their parents or siblings are alive or dead. They are destined for a life of overwhelming despair and longing to be reunited with their family and loved ones. Although many relief organizations have spear headed efforts to meet the overwhelming physical and emotional needs of the children and families of Haiti, the emotional toll of such a natural disaster cannot be ignored.

There are many children who remain waiting in Haiti's orphanages, to be reunited with their families or adopted by others. We cannot forget the importance of the emotional healing of these children, through nurturing and caring touch.

The Liddle Kidz Foundation Global programs support children living in these traumatic circumstances by providing care, nurturing and stability.   Through the use of compassionate and nurturing touch, children feel they are worthy, emotionally cared for and have enhanced self-esteem.  This nurturing care combines with their currently harsh circumstances to provide a strong foundation for their future.
