Kayatas Kids Fund

Hi,
My name is (P.T.) Porkpa Tokpa and I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corp that is dedicated to helping the children of Liberia, West Africa. I am also the founder of a community development group called the Kayatas Kids Fund Organization, based in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania (USA).

We are in great need of your help! We are currently building a children's clinic in a rural village, in Liberia and have successfully completed 80% of the clinic's construction. We now need your help in the form of donations to raise $30,000 by July 31,2015, to complete this building by the end of this year! I am excited to also be making a trip to Liberia during this time to assist with the clinic's completion. We are pushing forward everyday, and with your help we may finish the clinic and start treating children and their families by the beginning of next year! (2016)



The Kayatas Kids Fund mission is to improve the health and educational conditions of children in Liberia, by building and sustaining clinics and schools.

Kayatas Kids Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to improve the health and educational conditions of children in Liberia West Africa, by building and sustaining healthcare facilities and schools though out the country.

Over the last five years I have traveled back and forth to Liberia helping to improve the lives of children, starting with the small village that my parents were born and raised in called Kayata, located in Bong County (Liberia).

During my travels within the region, I discovered that one of the major issues children faced was access to medical care. There are absolutely no clinics or hospitals throughout this rural area of Liberia. The nearest facility, Phoebe Hospital, is more than an a 3 hour walk away through very rough and rugged terrain. Further more, 99.9% of the residents in Kayata, and the surrounding villages, do not have access to vehicles or transportation and cannot readily get to any medical facilities in time to save many lives.

When medical attention is needed in this area, volunteers must carry patients on makeshift stretchers and walk more than 3 hours through tough terrain to get to the nearest hospital. There have been many documented cases of seriously ill children, and pregnant women that have died during that 3 hour walk. There have also been many others that have died from preventable and treatable illnesses. Even more have died from simple infections or fevers, that could have easily been treated in a clinic or hospital.

The Kayatas Kids Fund organization decided to begin its first project of constructing a small clinic that would provide health and wellness services to the village of Kayata and other surrounding villages. This clinic would primarily focus on the health and wellness needs of children, but also provide healthcare and treatment for their families. Once completed, Kayatas Clinic would positively affect 28 villages throughout the area and 5 major towns further away. The lives of more than 5,000 people will be impacted by this clinic, most of whom are children!


Improve the health and educational needs of the children of Liberia by building, maintaining, and sustaining schools and healthcare facilities in rural Liberia.
