Mission Statement

Liddle Kidz Foundation Global uses the power of touch to reach the world’s most vulnerable children with experiences of appropriate nurturing touch that they often lack. With nurturing, compassion and touch therapy, children will develop and reach their full potential. We strive to address their critical tactile needs by working directly with their families and healthcare providers in pediatric hospitals, hospices, and orphanages to provide comprehensive nurturing services, consultation, education, program development and support. We are committed to furthering the development of touch therapy services for vulnerable and underserved populations internationally. Through education and support we work to create replicable and sustainable change. Children are our greatest gift and should be treated with extraordinary care!

Description

Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers work with hospitals, healthcare, childcare, orphanage and residential settings worldwide on short-term assignments. During these volunteer healthcare programs, LKF Global volunteer ambassadors share their expertise to improve the lives of infants, children and their caregivers.

They have in common a desire to share their experience, nurturing and care to provide the best start possible for children throughout the world. Learn how you can enjoy the most rewarding experience of a lifetime!

Every volunteer must:

- be a licensed healthcare provider

- have background in working with children in a healthcare capacity (such as professional massage therapists, nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists)

- pass a fully accredited and comprehensive background check

- sign and abide by child protection code of conduct

Would you recommend Liddle Kidz Foundation?

The Liddle Kidz Foundation is an amazing organization! I am a nurse and I was lucky enough to be a part of Tina Allen's pediatric massage certification course. She is brilliant about how to adapt pediatric massage for so many different medical conditions. Every time we asked about a specific condition such as cancer or NICU babies, she knew the best and most research based approach. We are excited to have a comprehensive pediatric and infant massage program at our hospital so that children do not have as much pain, go home earlier and their parents can learn how to comfort them at home. I would recommend Tina Allen and the Liddle Kidz Foundation to any healthcare provider who wishes to add professional touch therapy to their skill set.
