Orphaned and Abandoned Children | Victims of Landmines

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.

During many wars throughout the world, landmines have been widely used for decades. The concept of small explosives, to be hidden inconspicuously throughout villages, working fields, and pathways of travel, with a single touch of a finger an explosion is set off, maiming anyone within close range. Landmines remain latent, as active explosive devices until someone becomes the unfortunate trigger, while at the same time becoming victim of a vicious explosion.

Landmines pose particular dangers for children. Naturally curious, children are likely to pi1ck up strange objects.  In places like Vietnam and Cambodia, children use B40 anti-personnel mines to play 'boules'. These explosives have more catastrophic effects on children, whose small bodies succumb more readily to the horrific injuries mines inflict.

Children who manage to survive explosions are likely to be more seriously injured than adults, and often permanently disabled. Because a child's bones grow faster than the surrounding tissue, a wound may require repeated amputation and a new artificial limb as often as every six months — although the prosthesis is not likely to be available. Moreover, competing demands for scarce medical services also mean that children injured by mines seldom receive the care they deserve.

Liddle Kidz Foundation Global uses pediatric massage to ease muscle aches, calm stress, relieve tension and provide compassionate care.
