Sadly she wasn’t found quickly, and by the time she was taken to a nearby orphanage, she was in respiratory distress which soon led to pneumonia.

This week as we look back on 2016, we want to concentrate on the success of our healing homes programs.

As we bring you highlights from the final months of 2016, we want you to know that your love and support has made it possible for children in three different countries to feel better, smile more, and dare to hope for their futures.
The start of a new year is always a great time for reflection, and here at LWB we love the month of January as a time to remember all of the beautiful children who came into our hands the year before. Over the next three days, we want to share some of the highlights from our Medical program, as supporters like you helped so many incredible kids receive life-changing medical care. Let’s go month by month to remember some of the very special children you impacted.
