Romania has faced a number of economic hardships over the years. Only until the 1990’s, Romania’s government had banned forms of birth control, leading to a substantial amount of children confronted with abandonment, many parents left without the means to support a child, let alone even feed themselves. Although the country is in a state of reform, recent statistics show that up to 100,000 children are in care of the government run orphanages, and those institutions have some of the worst living conditions imaginable in Europe. These orphanages lack essentials such as washing facilities and medical treatment, and the children are subjected to physical, mental, and sexual abuse.
The Romanian orphans need nurturing care to great extents, in hopes to repair the pain and suffering within generations imparted upon these children.
The Liddle Kidz Foundation Global programs support children who are emotionally, physically and sexually traumatized with supportive nurturing care and emotionally appropriate nurturing touch therapy to support healing. Children who live in institutionalized settings without access to appropriate hygiene, medical care and exposed to such exploitative treatment will ultimately have a difficult time assimilating into an adult world. It is our goal to provide these children with comforting and a foundation to establish the emotional security to have the best chance for a positive future.
