India Volunteer Outreach | Children and Orphans in India

India | National FlagToday, 30-40% of the entire population of India's 1.2 billion inhabitants live in what are called "slums". Slums are urban areas where families dwell in extreme poverty, and are in many cases, illiterate and unemployed and unable to provide for their own basic human needs.

In many of the slums in India, drinking water and sanitation are not available. In addition, many of the shack homes reside on small ally streets where vehicles cannot pass, making garbage removal and collection next to impossible. Slums in all nations are hotbeds of crime, drug addiction, and alcoholism with high rates of mental illness and suicide. By 2011, it is estimated that the population of India's slums will reach 93 million people. It is in these conditions that 2 million of India's children under the age of five die every year, whether from malnutrition, diarrhea or pneumonia.

Those who live are destined to live a life of poverty and disease, with little hope of education or working toward a better life. For a brief time, we hope to bring rest and comfort to these children by giving them the gift of massage.

The Liddle Kidz Foundation Global programs support children living in the slums with hope, compassion, nurturing and appropriate developmental care.  Our interventions work to increase immunity, support healthy digestion, nutrient absorption and increase gastrointestinal function which can only contribute to a healthier future.
