Student Support: Meet Charlotte

This month we have been introducing you to a few of the students in our Impoverished Student Support program who are in need of sponsors.  It’s Charlotte’s turn to be featured, and we thought it help you get to know her by showing some scenes of her village and home.

Guiyang Foster Care

When I first got actively involved with charity work in China, I kept hearing about a wonderful foster care program in Guiyang, Guizhou which was supposedly one of the largest foster care programs in that country.   Over the years, we were contacted by many foster families there who hoped LWB could  provide medical care, such as heart surgeries, to the children they were caring for.   We were always happy to help.  As those children were adopted, I would often hear from their new parents about how loved their children were in foster care.

This past April, we finally met in person with the heads of this program, a married Chinese couple who have been fostering children since 1999.

Jay: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Mighty Jay was welcomed into LWB’s True Children’s Healing Home (TCHH) in Fujian last month, and he immediately treated us all to a big, wide smile!

Jay is two months old and was born with a severe bilateral cleft lip and palate. His condition can prove difficult to care for by busy orphanage staff due to the special time and attention his feeding needs present. TCHH is a perfect fit for Jay, where he has been eating, sleeping, and growing like a champ! Read more.
