Kythe Child Life Program

Posted by Liz at 7:41 PM
Just had an overview about KYTHE earlier. I'm sharing my notes here and please help me spread the word. Let us lend a helping hand to those who are in need...

I. Kythe Presentation
Kythe is derived from a Scottish word “kayth” which means healing through simple sharing and togetherness

It utilizes Patch Adam’s approach – incorporating laughter and bringing humor to patients/children for them to live a quality life.

Kythe gives children a semblance of normal childhood

- Preparation
- Education

- Integrated Reading Program (more on Philippine Literature/Storybook)
- Annual Summer Camp (for children 8 years old and above, 3-day out of town)
- Care for Caregivers (Kythe’s treat for parents/caretakers of the patients)

II. Outreach/Support
Mommy She (her son Gerald undergoes continuous treatment for kidney failure) shared how thankful she is for all the help and support Kythe has provided them.

What can we do to help?
