Orphaned and Abandoned Children with Down Syndrome

As the number of orphans escalates around the world, there is an increasing demand for sensory stimulation, nurturing touch and palliative care within orphanages and childcare settings. It is the vision of the Liddle Kidz Foundation Global to make a true difference for children who have been orphaned, along with their caregivers who lack the necessary support to provide them with best developmental care possible.

Down syndrome or trisomy 21 is a chromosomal disorder caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 21st chromosome.  Often Down syndrome is associated with some impairment of cognitive ability and physical growth as well as facial appearance.

Individuals with Down syndrome tend to have a lower than average cognitive ability, often ranging from mild to moderate learning disabilities. A small number have severe to profound mental disability.

Those with Down Syndrome may also experience hearing loss, congenital heart disease, seizure disorders, cataracts, hypotonia & hypertonia, protruding tongue, constipation and spinal cord compression.

Liddle Kidz Foundation Global uses pediatric massage to decrease spasticity, increase range of motion, to increase performance on motor tasks, benefit muscle tone and decrease constipation by improving gastrointestinal function.

Liddle Kidz Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that uses the power of touch to reach the world’s most vulnerable children with experiences of appropriate nurturing touch that they often lack.   We collaborate with caregivers and healthcare professionals to raise awareness of the practice and benefits of nurturing touch for children.
