WHO WE ARE

at Kits Of Hope

Imagine you are a child who has been taken from their homes, from their parents' care by strangers; You are alone, terrified, and anxious – confused about everything that is happening. Surrounded by unknown faces at unfamiliar places. This isn't just a figment of someone’s imagination.

 

As a pediatrician, Dr. Eko is on the front lines of caring for these children, meeting them in the office shortly after being removed from their homes. It is not just temporary discomfort and misery that the children feel, but the incident can get deeply lodged in their memories, affecting their mental health and brain development.

Can you imagine how heartbreaking it is for helpless children to suffer so much for reasons which they can barely comprehend and have no control over?

The number of children in foster care continues to rise across the country, reaching as high as 74 percent with parental drug abuse being one of the most common contributing factors.

Play is essential for child development and it doesn't have to be complicated. From simple activities such as building blocks and matching shapes to interactive reading and imaginative games, all are important in building the necessary connections for socio-emotional development so children have the tools to safely explore their worlds".
