Newborn Twins Ana and Lisa Arrive at the Mukono Baby Room

In early January, we learned of twin newborn girls in Uganda whose mother passed away the day after their birth. What an enormous loss for these preemie sisters. It’s heartbreaking to think of any mom losing her life giving birth. Maternal deaths vary greatly around the world, but the highest rates are still found primarily in Africa. Uganda has made great strides in reducing maternal deaths over the last five years, but their maternal death rate is still a far too high 336 per 100,000 live births.

Healing Home Hero of the Week: Gentle Nico

This winter, we are going to be sharing the stories of some of the tiniest heroes of all — the babies in our healing homes.  Baby Nico is the very first hero in our series, and we hope that his story of spirit and strength will inspire you. In September, an orphanage in Jiangxi province, China contacted us about a preemie in their care who was not thriving. At three months of age, he weighed just five pounds and was suffering from a chronic upset stomach. We welcomed him to our Anhui Healing Home where we hoped our nannies would be able to help him gain weight and begin to develop as he should.

Baby Christine and Baby Tessa

At the very end of February, on a winter night that dropped to just 24 degrees, a tiny newborn baby was found outside in the cold. 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. LWB was happy to help with her emergency hospitalization.

Baby Christine, as she came to be called, was admitted to the NICU. Thankfully with antibiotics, a warm incubator, and lots of care by the hospital nurses and doctors, she was able to be discharged to our Anhui Healing Home yesterday. Although she is still very tiny, we know she is mighty. Read more.

Even as our hearts filled with sadness over the family’s enormous loss, we knew it was urgent to get the baby girls to the hospital. Thanks to our wonderful supporters, Sydney and Reagan’s journey of healing with LWB had begun. Read more.
