Jan: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Meet Jan! This little lady was born last spring with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. Like all babies with cleft lip, feeding is challenging since the cleft lip makes sucking on a bottle difficult or impossible.


When Jan was admitted to LWB’s Anhui Healing Home in early June, she weighed only six pounds and suffered from tummy issues and dehydration.


Thanks to the skilled care of the nannies at AHH, Jan is now doing much better! She is beginning to put on weight and her eyes are bright.

Jan will continue to receive the specialized care she needs until she is old enough and weighs enough to have her lip repaired. She will return to AHH for recovery after her life-changing surgery. Jan is in need of sponsors to support her care at Anhui Healing Home. Sponsorships of $50 per month or shared sponsorships of $25 per month are available. Sponsors will receive reports and photos each month to follow Jan’s progress and growth. Won’t you be a part of Jan’s story of hope and healing?
