Trauma Dolls in Many Colors and Prints

The Kiwanis Club of Pearl Harbor inherited a service project started by the Kiwanis Club of West Oahu. West Oahu began making trauma dolls that would be donated to the children’s ward at local hospitals. The completion of these dolls became a service project for our members on April 3. Susie brought the sewing equipment and polyfill to stuff the dolls. It was a great meeting where members were able to work on the dolls while discussing future service projects, current events, and getting to know each other a little better.
We are putting the finishing touches on 38 dolls and they will be donated to Kaiser Permanente’s Child Life Services Dept, along with preemie beanies.
These dolls are used to explain medical procedures that pediatric patients will be receiving. The doll helps the child to better understand what’s ahead and even feel more in control.
Angelita Juan, Child Life Services Coordinator at Kaiser Permanente will be our guest speaker on June 12. Please join us to learn more about what programs they offer our Keiki.
