Macedonia Volunteer Outreach | Children and Orphans in Macedonia

Macedonia | National FlagMacedonia, just north of Greece, is a small country of slightly over 2 million people. Macedonian culture has long held to the practice of institutionalizing disabled members of their communities, believing that the best care could be provided by medical personnel in hospital-like environments. Children with disabilities are stigmatized and most are not allowed to attend school and gain critical education. While many organizations are working to change the social perception of persons and children with disabilities, there is still work to be done.

There is a strong relation between the current destitutions of the children of Macedonia to the Kosovo crisis in the 90’s when refugees from surrounding countries were displaced, and found a home in an already existing economic struggle in the country.  Many of these children have physical and mental disabilities, and one universally understandable language with which to reach them and show them our care is healing massage.

The Liddle Kidz Foundation Global programs support children who are emotionally, physically and developmentally impaired with hands-on inclusionary care.  It is through LKF Global programs that children living in isolating care centers throughout Macedonia receive the opportunity to participate in emotionally comforting care that is on one hand, customized to their individual needs, and the other hand, carefully provided to give the child the opportunity to feel included within their peer group.
