Most of us think of luggage as something to carry our “home away from home” clothes and various “must haves” when we go on vacation. Rarely is a foster child going to experience a vacation, much less pack in actual luggage. Too often they are carried from a dangerous situation and placed in a safe environment with only what they are wearing at the time. Koinonia helps provide foster children with clothes and basic needs as they adapt to living with caring strangers. Most foster children will live in at least three foster homes, and even as many as 20 throughout their childhood; and…quite frankly, they pack in big garbage sacks or boxes to move from placement to placement.
Watch the video “Hello. My Name is Michael.” and see how luggage can make a difference.
“ReMoved”, is an emotional journey highlighting the desperate needs of foster children. This short 13 minutes film compresses days, weeks, and even years that are lived out in the real lives of thousands of children.
