Keyara’s Gift provides access to education, healthcare and other basic needs for those who suffer the effects of poverty.
Having lived and worked in West Africa for over 13 years, the founders of Keyara’s Gift, Kreig and Karen Ecklund are well aware of the many needs. While in Liberia adopting their daughter, Keyara, they experienced U.S. Immigration challenges that kept them in the Country for 2 years longer than expected. During that time they came face to face with the overwhelming needs within the community they lived. People were sick, hungry and uneducated. In response, they chose to help feed the hungry, heal the sick (with medicine) and love those that came to their door.
They returned to California in 2009 and since then have continued to help those left behind in Liberia. They desire to continue helping those in need but know they can’t do it alone. By founding Keyara’s Gift, they hope many more individuals will have the joy of partnering with them to see lives changed and transformed through education, healthcare, and other basic needs!
