Children’s Day 2020

June 1 is International Children’s Day, a time set aside to promote the welfare and well-being of children around the world.  In China, this day is usually a favorite for children living in orphanages as they are often treated to a special meal or receive gifts of fruit or sweets.  Many orphanages will take the children in their care to parks or other outdoor locations as well.  This year in China COVID-19 restrictions meant that many of the celebrations for orphaned children, including the kids in our healing home, were held indoors.

Voices of Uganda: Joyce

She knows the kids, their names, their personalities, and how many nappies they wear each day. The children in her care are vulnerable. They have significant medical needs and have suffered the trauma of being separated from their parents. But she shows up and is there for them, day after day. She’s a familiar, dependable person in their lives. Joyce oversees the mountainous volume of laundry at the Mukono Healing Home.

Unity Update: Cody and Drew

Now that COVID-19 has stabilized in China, our Unity Initiative is once again receiving new children into our program and providing life-saving surgeries to children from rural areas of Anhui province. We recently welcomed two new children into our program: Cody and Drew. Cody was diagnosed with his heart defect when he was less than one week old. This news was “snow plus frost” to his parents who did not want to believe it was possible. They took him to several different hospitals, hoping someone would give them a different diagnosis, as they knew they could never afford the costs of heart surgery on the father’s meager and sporadic income.

Voices From Uganda: Victor

He sweeps, straightens, wipes down toys, and takes out the garbage. In a home full of babies, there is much to do, and his work is vital. Essential workers. Our focus on them is sharper right now, isn’t it? COVID-19 has renewed our gratitude for those who provide the basic services that our world needs. We have a stronger grasp on how life would slow to a stop without the services they provide. And for a home full of vulnerable children in Uganda, there are many essential workers. Victor is the custodian at the Mukono Baby Home, a healing home which is supported in part by Love Without Boundaries.

Introducing Twins Lizzie and Sawyer

Twins Sawyer and Lizzie were born late last summer. After their parents were no longer able to care for them, they entered our Cambodia Foster Care program when they were three months old along with their older brothers Henry and Howard. Although Sawyer is the first-born of the twins, Lizzie has him beat on size. We love her extra baby rolls!

Emergency Food Relief

This week, LWB launched an Emergency Food Relief drive in response to the COVID-19 crisis around the world, as so many children in the locations where we work are going hungry. The situation has become critical for many severely impoverished families, who even before the pandemic were only just surviving as day laborers. Now under lock-down orders, these vulnerable families have no ability to purchase food for their children.

Stories of the Heart: Mason

When I first walked into our China Healing Home to meet its precious little residents, it was a Wednesday morning in early December — time now forever marked in my mind as “pre-coronavirus”. The sun was shining through the window, and a nanny introduced me to each of the children one by one. I was excited to meet all of the children who are cared for so lovingly in this home, but I was especially looking forward to seeing Baby Mason, a brand new 6-month-old arrival to our home with a very broken heart.
