Heath’s Desire to Learn

Last month, one of our Cambodia team members met a young boy named Heath. Heath is eleven years old and has severe cerebral palsy. He always wondered what was inside books and wanted to learn to read so badly. However, Heath has never been able to attend school due to his special needs. The very first thing we arranged for Heath was new crutches to help him with mobility, but then we began talking with his family about how it could become possible for this bright little boy to finally go to school.

A Final Surgery for Harley and James

In early 2016, we learned about twin boys who were born conjoined at their pelvis area.  Harley and James shared one liver but had two bladders and four kidneys. They lived with their 20-year-old parents in a small village in rural Guizhou. The operation to separate them was expected to be extremely complex and costly — completely out of reach for this impoverished family to borrow or pay.

Bringing Water, Bringing Hope: You Made It Happen!

Over the summer, we introduced you to some of the children in a rural village in western Uganda who were having to walk several hours down a dangerous mountain path each day to get water. We researched many ways to help a make a difference in their lives, and village leaders agreed that rainwater harvesting could have a big impact on their community. We set a goal to provide 100 family water units to children in the village during our Bring Water, Bring Hope campaign, and we’re thrilled to report that you exceeded that dream!

Fighting Hunger Through Hot Lunches

Approximately 75% of children in Cambodia are chronically malnourished. We’re working to change that number through our hot lunch program in our Believe in Me schools. Ruby tells us that she eats as much as she can for lunch at our Believe in Me Sokhem school because she doesn’t know when she will have the opportunity to eat again. It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it? Yet this type of food insecurity is quite common in this region of Cambodia.

Jordyn

As Down Syndrome Awareness month moves into National Adoption Month this November, we want to introduce baby Jordyn. Jordyn was born with Down Syndrome and now needs emergency heart surgery to survive…so that someday she can hopefully have a family of her own. We recently received a call from an orphanage in Anhui. A beautiful two-month-old baby girl in their care was suspected of having a serious heart defect in addition to being diagnosed with Down Syndrome. When they asked if we could help her get the quality medical evaluations she needed, we quickly agreed.

Sweet Sue Waits for a Family

Sweet Sue entered our foster care program in January 2016 at age two. What a little peanut she was! The first month she was in foster care, Sue and her foster sister received new tricycles and scooters from their sponsors. Sue was so small her feet barely touched the ground. A year later, Sue was working on walking on her own and had gained strength and weight, thanks to her dedicated foster parents and her older foster sister, Piper.

Final Day of the 2017 Cambodia Medical Exchange

It’s our final morning to say “Hello from Phnom Penh and Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital.” We’re happy that all our patients continue to recover well, and that meant a few more discharges were in order. Kenzie’s grandma reported that her granddaughter slept well through the night and completely regained her appetite, so it was time for our team to say goodbye to this beautiful little girl. We’re all wishing her a future filled with love, health, and laughter.

Third Surgery Day of the 2017 Cambodia Medical Exchange

Hello again from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where our medical exchange team had another productive day.  First up was morning rounds — a great time to check on all the kids. For those of you who may be new to cleft operations, we’ll just say that recovery from palate surgery is often quite painful. Simply put – it hurts. During this week in Cambodia, we’ve been amazed at how quickly most of our patients have bounced right back after surgery.
