Children like lovely Julie Ann.

Hope for Nancy and Her Family

Nancy’s father is a farmer with an elementary school education. Although he works hard at farming, their income is minimal and is dependent on the weather and crop prices. Nancy was often sick as an infant and required multiple hospitalizations, putting a huge financial strain on this family.


After repeated hospitalizations for illnesses, her parents took her to two different hospitals for tests to determine why she was always so ill. Read more.

Patrick: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Patrick is a little guy with great timing: He arrived at his orphanage just when several LWB volunteers were wrapping up a visit there. He was a newborn with the special need of anal atresia and needed immediate surgery. Patrick was just in time to hitch a ride with our volunteers to a prominent children’s hospital, where he had surgery that evening.

Unity Fund Girls

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.
