On May 28th, 2023, volunteers from KECN visited a social welfare institution located in Anhui Province to celebrate International Children's Day (June 1) with the disabled kids there.
KECN also donated a lot of disposable diapers for kids suffering from brain paralysis.
Mrs. Liu, the director of the welfare institution, showed us around the children's home, Sunshine Village, where they advocate to raise the kids based on a family model. The model entails the recruitment of educated couples who act as their parents and take care of the kids, feed them, teach them, and spend "family" time with them. Not only can the children enjoy parental affection, but they can learn how to get along well with others, which is beneficial to their physical and mental health.
The activity led to happiness for the kids, and the staff expressed their appreciation of our support.
The money that KECN used to fund the gifts came from Kimball Electronics' 2023 $50,000 Global Giving Project, for which each facility was given an allotment of the total based on employee head count.
