The Tale of Tobias

Once there was a little boy named Tobias who was born with a medical condition called anal atresia. Sadly, it caused him to be left all on his own, and the urgent surgery he needed at birth was never able to be done. For two years, his tiny body wasn’t able to work the way it should, and eating and even moving became painful. Tobias learned to just lie in his orphanage crib all day.

Healing Postponed: An Update From Uganda

Before the pandemic took off around the world, our supporters helped fund heart surgeries for six children in Uganda waiting for heart surgeries that were unavailable in their country. They were accepted for surgery in India, and the families were filled with gratitude and relief that their children would have a chance for healing. Just before the families went to the embassy to request medical visas to travel to India, the borders closed, and they have been stuck in limbo waiting ever since.

Voices of Uganda: Deborah

As we spoke, she was either covering her face and giggling, or swelling with tears. Deborah is a woman of great joy and compassion, and I liked her right away. She works twelve-hour days, from 6 AM to 6 PM, as one of the cooks for the Mukono Healing Home in Uganda. For eight years, she has been working hard at this job. And to her work, she pours out an abundance of skill and heart.

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.
