Leo arrived to LWB’s Anhui Healing Home (AHH) weighing just 2.9 kg (6.4 lb) at one month old. His heart defect caused him to be weary from simple acts of eating or interacting for short periods of time.
His loving nannies at AHH worked with him by feeding him nutritious formula in smaller, more frequent doses, which contributed to his steady weight gain.
It always warms our hearts when organizations in China pull together to help kids in need.
Over the past year, three children with vision issues who were previously in LWB programs have moved to the care of Bethel China.

Born with a spinal meningocele that had ruptured by time she was abandoned less than a week after her birth, sweet Faith came into the care of Love Without Boundaries (See our blog, “Prayers for Baby Faith“). Plans were made to send her urgently to a hospital in Shanghai, where she arrived with dirt in every wrinkle of her little body.

Little Winston entered our Anhui Healing Home when he was a newborn. Now four months old, Winston has gained enough weight to have his cleft lip surgery. Winston is attached to his nanny and cries when she leaves his sight. He recently learned to roll over and likes to play with toys that make noise.
