Yi Xuan: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Yi Xuan is one of LWB’s first Unity Fund children with anal atresia, a condition that we are seeing more and more of in the children that we help.

Yi Xuan-2

This little three-month-old has already had one surgery, resulting in a colostomy bag. Soon after surgery though, she developed an infection that was treated in Shanghai last week. Her poor family is from a very rural area in northwestern Gansu Province and has traveled far to find medical care for their daughter.

LWB’s Top Ten Photos of 2013: Kissing Mom

LWB learned of an extremely impoverished family who desperately was trying to get heart surgery for their son Tong. Thanks to our Unity Fund, we were able to heal this little boy’s heart. While he was in the hospital, we learned that his mother was dying of an untreated heart condition as well. She had never sought medical treatment because she wanted her son’s life to come before hers. One of our amazing volunteers asked her church to consider giving the gift of life to Tong’s mother as well, and her surgery was soon fully funded.

This poignant photo shows the moment Tong said goodbye to his mom before she was wheeled back to the operating room. Read more.

A Thankful Family

This summer, a migrant worker from Guizhou Province wrote us a letter requesting help for his son, Dalang. His baby boy was diagnosed with complex heart disease (CHD) when he was just three months old, and the family did not have the money to pay for the necessary surgery but were unwilling to give up. They heard about LWB’s Unity Fund and wrote requesting help (“A Father’s Plea for Help”). LWB supporters were moved and quickly came through, and Dalang was able to receive the surgery he needed to live a normal life.  DaLang’s father recently sent us these photos along with a letter of thanks.

A Mother’s Desperation

About a month ago, XianRui began complaining that her tooth hurt.  After some time, her jaw began swelling on the left side and she began running a high fever. XianRui’s parents borrowed money to take her to the doctor and were encouraged to go on to the hospital in Kunming. By the time they arrived, she had an infection in her bloodstream, and doctors discovered that she also had TB.

XianRui’s mother heard about LWB’s Unity Fund, which is designed to help families remain together, and wrote to ask for our help in getting treatment for her precious daughter. Read more.

Taking a Leap for Yue

Eight-year-old Yue lives with her parents in a mountainous area of Shaanxi province.  She was born with PFO, or patent foramen ovale, a heart condition, and her family is very poor and cannot afford her medical care.

Unity Fund Girls

The goal of Love Without Boundaries’ Unity Fund is to keep impoverished families together by providing medical care to children in need. Today we’d like to feature two lovely girls, one of whom has already had her surgery through our Unity Fund and one of whom is hoping to be funded for surgery.

Beautiful Yuqing is new to our Unity Fund Program and is in the hospital awaiting urgent heart surgery. Her VSD has gone unrepaired for a long time as her parents have waited and hoped that they would have enough money to pay for her surgery. Read more.

A Father’s Plea for Help

As an old saying goes, everyone has a story.  If we take the time to look deep into their eyes, we can read it. This little boy has beautiful eyes that tell of struggle and hard beginnings — but they also speak of hope and love. You see, DaLang is so loved and adored by his parents. His mother and father have both had difficult lives and finally found happiness when they found each other and had a beautiful son.

DaLang’s father wrote us to tell us their story and to ask for help in an effort to save his precious son’s life. Read more.

JunYu And His Family

One of our staff members in China recently had the privilege of meeting this sweet young man and his family who we are hoping to help through our Unity Fund.

JunYu is 11 years old and was born with several complex medical issues. He was found as a baby in 2002 by a kind teacher who took him home to raise as her own. She and her husband now have a four year old son and an elderly mother that they care for as well and JunYu. Read more.

Cousins Benefit from Unity Fund

We were first asked to help Jiang when he was eleven months old. A relative of Jiang’s worked as a nanny in an orphanage where we help many children, and the nanny directed Jiang’s family to apply for help through Love Without Boundaries. Partnering with Smile Train in Kunming, we were able to provide cleft lip surgery for Jiang in February of 2012 with the help of our Unity Fund. His family traveled 200 miles from their home in a rural town in Guizhou to seek help for their son. Read more.
