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.

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.

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.
While we wish we could post the photo of every child we helped in 2012, we hope you will enjoy this much shorter snapshot of some of the joys of this last year!
In January, we celebrated our Unity Fund, which works to heal poor, rural children so that families can stay together.

As you can see, her smile absolutely lit up the hospital ward! Read more.
Five-year-old Jin Bing has a complicated heart defect. When he was a baby, Jin Bing’s mother abandoned the family, and his father had to become a migrant worker in a province far away. Jin Bing became another “left behind” child who is now being raised by his grandmother in very meager conditions. The family has no financial means to pay for the life saving surgery this little boy needs.
This sweet child needs surgery in order to grow and lead a healthy life. LWB’s Unity Fund exists to help families like Jin Bing’s who are facing major medical expenses stay together. We would love to help this family and lift the burden that they are facing. By donating to JinBing’s surgery fund, you would be giving this child and his family hope for his future.
