    Diagnosing sight issues early in premature infants. Easing the anxiety of a child during an MRI. Educating a preteen and her family about how to deal with diabetes. Giving a voice to adolescents with speech limitations. These moments are happening to kids across the region because of Covenant Kids and the businesses, organizations and individuals who support it. Every penny of every gift donated to the Covenant Kids Fund with the Covenant HealthCare Foundation goes directly to support medical programs and equipment for our region’s tiniest patients.
